Fresh Lemon and Cream Cheese Trifle

READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
Recipe by nonnie4sj

My whole family enjoys the taste of lemon, and I was looking for a cool refreshing dessert for a family dinner after my son's baseball tourney. I couldn't find what I wanted, so I took some from here, some from there, and this is what I came up with.

I gave this 5 stars! This recipe is so good! I made this for a family gathering and it was a big hit! I came home with very little. I followed the recipe except omitted the grated lemon as I'm not crazy over grated lemon in things. I did however sprinkle some grated lemon on top with some lemon twists and slices of lemon. I will actually be making this refreshing dessert again for another family gathering next Saturday. Thanks for a awesome dessert! Christine
