Top Review by Sydney Mike

I LOVE LEMON, so to the lemon pudding mixture I added a teaspoon of lemon zest! Also used a rounded 1/3 cup of chopped pistachio nuts! These were made to entice people to look over my tables during a park-wice garage sale, & they were gone in no time! I even passed out copies of the recipe to those interested! Thanks for the keeper!
