My mother is known for her wonderful deserts and this is one of her best. Whenever I serve it everyone raves and asks for the recipe.{I use cool whip for the topping}

Top Review by chef a la Sheena

found the recipe easy to make however once complete my husband and i noticed a very strong egg flavor. I'm not sure if I was an error on my part or not. I Found that i need more detail as to what the lemon filling should be like when done. What tempature it should get to and how long it should be cooked for. I had it a double boiler for 30 mins on low-med heat. Should it have been higher? more info in the recipe would help.
