Great summertime dessert from Taste of Home.

I made this last 4th of July. I offered 3 dessert options and this was the only one that was totally devoured after the fireworks. The extra lemon juice really gives the pudding a nice tartness. It balances well with the creamy layers and pecan crust. Had several people ask for the recipe.
