Found in the 2001 cookbook, Luscious Lemon Desserts, this recipe makes for a tart, wonderfully tasting lemon treat! Preparation time does not include the time needed to cool to room temperature or to chill for 2 hours or more!

This is so easy to do and perfect for lemon lover like I am. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. But other than that, followed the recipe. It's creamy and yummy. I didn't put it in a sieve. The texture was perfect. Thanks Sydney Mike :) Made for Holiday tag game
