This is my new favorite dessert. As others suggested, I cut the sugar to 1 cup & added the zest of one lemon. I served it in small antique sundae glasses & topped with a splash of cream, 3 ras...

I think I would have rated this higher if, after 7 hours in the fridge, the center wasn't still mostly liquid. Perhaps it has something to do with the way I juice my lemons (with a potato ricer...

Sensational flavor and shockingly easy. The smooth creaminess blends with the lemon tart flavor for a truly refreshing dessert. I only made 1/3 of the recipe since it was too hard to justify e...
