    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe comes from the Fall 2006 issue of Cooking for 2. It is very light and makes a quick weeknight dessert for 2. The recipe is credited to Joan Jay of Frisco, TX. I use Splenda when making this and it works great.

      I made this with Splenda, omitting the food coloring. I meant to make it last for two meals, but couldn't resist gobbling it up on the spot. Then the next day I was thinking of it all day and wishing I'd saved some, so I ended up making another batch and then gobbling all of that up. Ba-a-ad echo! Goo-oo-ood Paula for such a great dessert.

      This was a 1-2-3 tag for a last min Easter dessert. I had made a cake for the gents but then decided that I wanted dessert too, lol. This just hit the spot. It's very light and lemony and the perfect ending to a big holiday meal. Very easy to make. I didn't use the food coloring. Thanks Paula :D

      NICE and Light! I used Splenda, 1% milk, and Cool Whip Lite. I enjoyed it layered in between cake with fresh sliced slrawberries and topped off with lemon curd. Yum! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
