Reviews for Breezy Lemon-Berry Dessert
"How did you get the dessert to hold together? Mine fell apart it was like pudding? It did not mold. Please let me know"
"I made this recently for a Bridal shower. Wonderfully cool dessert on a hot summer day. I could not find lady fingers in my area so I substituted angel food cake slices. I also used s/f pudding. Everyone loved it, I will be adding this to my recipe box for when I'm looking for a quick dessert that's refreshing."
"I love lemon so I was thrilled to make andenjoy it"
"I will make this dessert. The only thing I would do differently is use cooked pudding. I don't like the lack of smoothness derived by using instant puddings. I recognize the ease of them it's just a personal preference."
"I, too, made homemade ladyfingers. They're impossible to find around here! The dessert was very good, even with the substitutions I had to make (s/f lemon pudding and regular creamer). Makes a lovely presentation, also!"
