      Have had this gem of a recipe tucked away in one of my 'to do' cookbooks & finally got it out TO DO! Since I really, really enjoy the taste of lemon, I did make a couple of changes here, but nothing major ~ I did include half a teaspoon of lemon zest in the crust, & used 1/4 teaspoon of it sprinkled over the top just before dusting it with the powdered sugar! Thanks so much for the recipe for these great tasties! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Bargain Basement tag]
