This recipe is the result of wanting fruit dip and not having most of the ingredients. When I got the ingredients and made it according to original, I discovered I preferred this one to the original. Can be served right away or chilled firm.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine white sugar, water, lemon juice, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a thick-bottomed pot; bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low, place a cover on the pot, and cook at a simmer for 3 minutes. Remove cover and continue cooking, stirring often, until the sugar and salt dissolve into the liquid, about 3 minutes more. Remove pot from heat and set aside to cool for 5 minutes; pour syrup into a large bowl.

I tasted the finished product (after exactly halving the recipe--even half egg white-- so I could write a valid review) and found a good foundation recipe. If the recipe was clear it would rate four stars easily. To make things fit our family's tastes I added 4 oz more cream cheese (we like a heavier cream cheese flavor over the sugar). The lemon flavor was faint so I juiced one lemon and added it. I also added some lemon zest. It was perfect for us. I wanted to eat it with a giant spoon and ignore the fruit. Thanks for sharing!
