    Donna M.'s Note:

    Refreshing, cool and creamy with the zing of lemon. This is a snap to make, and tastes so good! This is another one of my 'original' creations. Enjoy!

      This is sooo delicious! I didn't have lemon zest so used a few drops of lemon flavoring and it worked out just fine...just need to add a few more drops next time.

      I made this for the first time to take to a club pot luck luncheon and it received rave reviews. As I was making it, I thought more of a lemon pie filling would be better as the top layer but that would have made it much richer. It is light and lemony as is...definitely a keeper. Thanks Donna!

      I made this for dessert and everybody loved it! It is rich and nice and lemony. I accidently bought cook and serve lemon pudding, so I had to make it with egg yolk and cook it down, so I didn't use the 3 cups milk. But it still turned out great! Thanks so much for posting!
