      This is delicious! It's tastes like delicious lemon sherbet, Homemade! Buddha made these with his son Chef #598671 (who accidentally added 1 1/2 Tbsp of lemon zest instead of 2 tsp) but no matter, and they were really easy to prepare! A wonderfully light dessert with the perfect amount of lemon flavor and very creamy. You could probably do this with oranges, raspberries,... Endless possibilities! Definitely, Definitely making these again.... Often! Great summertime treat, thank you so much for posting! Note: We first made these 6/27/08 and have made them many times since (larger quantity and a plastic container for ease rather than presentation), it's a great recipe! :)

      WOW! I exepected this to turn out to be icy, but it wasn't frozen solid in the end- instead it stayed soft like icecream! We made as directed but accidentally we added too much lemon zest. Even though we had put in TBS instead of TSP everyone still thought that there was a perfect amount of lemon flavor. I loved making and eating it but it was too lemony for me. than you for posting this exiting recipe.
