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).
