"It was a good dessert, just not lemony enough for me. I will make it again but with a few alterations. Super easy to make, but I found it lacking in lemon flavor even after doubling the grated lemon peel. Next time I will try adding some lemon juice to the blueberries to give them a kick and use parchment paper on the bottom of the pan since some of the blueberries remained in the pan. Not a big deal though, they were easy to scoop up and put back on the top. I used real whipped cream for the topping."

"Very tasty and easy! I only used about 1/4 cup of sugar and it was still plenty sweet for us, especially with the whipped topping. Next time I will probably add some more lemon peel. Thanks for the recipe!"
