Nana's Lemon Cheese (Lemon Spread) for Microwave

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Island Gurl

Lemons are a kiwi favorite. This simple, yet stunning, lemon spread is divine over hot scones, toast, or muffins. Use nice, juicy lemons with a bright yellow rind. A special thank you to Nana for sharing her recipe.
