Recipe by Mimi in Maine
This is my grandmother's recipe dating back years ago. It is a very light, airy dessert with a nice lemon flavor, and graham cracker crumbs on the bottom and top. It was always a favorite of mine when I was little and also with my children. No, you do not taste the evaporated milk when it is ready to eat. It's just a nice dessert when you need something that is not heavy.

Ooh, this is so yummy, not just for after a meal, but the sweet counterpart to Chicken Noodle Soup when you are feeling under the weather. An added bonus is how easy it is to make. Try it, REALLY!
