The crust was terrific!!!I made this for the Ladies Sunday School Class; was not pleased with the filling's taste. The size of cream cheese was not revealed (I used 8 ounces) and the filling could have used some sweetener (sugar or sweetened condensed milk). Many of the ladies agreed with me. I added lemon extract to the glaze as the overall taste was lacking something ... just cannot put my finger on it! Next time, I will add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar to the filling and the lemon extract to the glaze (which I will double the amount of glaze, too).
Can you say SCRUMPTIOUS??? Kim, you were right these are so good!!!! Nice dessert for the summer too. They are light and refreshing too. I was licking my fingers after I cut them and had to have one immediately. DH ate about 10 today. Thanks these will be made again and again!!
These are very good. I made them just like Kim said. Taste so good.
