    Trinkets's Note:

    This is my friend Lori's most famous dessert. She found this delicious concoction on Bon Appetit. Lemony, creamy, rich and decadent. This will either get you married or make you famous! This does take time and many bowls but I can personally guarantee this will be the only thing people talk about the next day!
