OOOH this is sooo wonderful & sooo easy!!! And it can be redone with any fruit! Just a quick hint...when spreading the curd on the end pieces, spread on the OUTSIDE so you can lay the flat cut side on the plate & it won't topple over, lol. everybody loved this - even THE PICKY ONE who claims to not like lemon. ;) I made this for PAC 9/06. Thanks, Cricket*!
