    We just loved this. I made as written using two largish lemons from my backyard tree. I loved not measuring! I used to make a 70’s Gourmet magazine recipe that I lost along the way, but this was pretty close and easy to make. We are very casual and after folding in the whipped cream, I spooned it into cute little juice glasses for a perfect 6 portions.
