    It's a not a real good recipe, because in order to make the lemon filling you have to separate the yolks from the whites. If you do not, you are going to have either a lumby version of custard or it will be too thick!

    Despite following the instructions to the letter, it came out like scrambled eggs. I had to run it through a sieve to get anything that resembled custard. The small amount of custard I managed to save tasted pretty good, but there was only enough for one serving. I shan't bother to make this again.

    Wonderful lemon taste. It's a bit tart. So next time I may add more sugar. I will probably try it with splenda. It's so easy to do. Thanks Just Happy! Made for PAC Fall 2011
