    Claire de Luna's Note:

    I got this recipe from Epicurious and it quickly became a favorite. Much easier to make than it looks, it's lighter (and easier) than a cheesecake, and everyone seems to love it. The best part is you can make it ahead of time and forget about it until it's time to serve. It's a great ending for a Mexican or summer menu.
