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! :)
