A tasty lemon dessert served with raspberries. Found on Tasty German Recipes dot com. cooktime is chill time. **For those unable to locate gelatin sheets (or leaves), this is one conversion I found that may help to use powdered gelatin. "6 sheets of gelatine is the equivalent of 3 teaspoons of powdered gelatine (a 10g sachet). This is enough to soft-set 480ml/16fl.oz. of liquid." That leads me to think this recipe would use 1.5 tsp of powdered gelatin? I haven't tried it yet..but may look for the sheets to try it. :) I know Amazon has them, but do think I can find them more locally. I just LOVE anything lemon..and champagne to boot? YAY!
