Lemon Cheese

Lemon Cheese created by LouJoy

This recipe came over with my grandmother from England. It is great as a spread on toast, or use for filling in frozen pre-baked tart shells....top with whipped cream for a quick and easy dessert for unexpected guests.

    How long do you cook it for? About how long? Are there any other details you guys think might help? I don't know if I did it right.

    I never realised Lemon Cheese was so easy to make and after trying this recipe, I will never buy it again! It is quite zingy which is what I prefer.<br/>This is so scrumptious that I had to stop myself from going to the fridge every 5 minutes to go and try one more teaspoon of it! <br/>Thank you so much for sharing it.
