Cute and tasty dessert! I love anything lemon and this was no exception. Very good directions. I used custard cups that measured 3/4 of a cup each, they fit well in a 9x13 inch glass baking dish. I like the idea of making these the day before. Thanks for sharing this recipe, one I will be making again.
