wow were these good..the end of my snack night, and what a great ending. I discovered to late my whipping cream had gone off so used custard cream instead of the homemade devonshire. Either way they were so light and airy and lemony without being overpowering i was thrilled. Never been to Norma's but if theirs is half as good as yours, then they deserve high prices :) Made for Newest Zaar Tag
