Reviews for Lemon Chiffon Dessert
"oops, wrong recipe!"
"Mine tasted good, though I added lemon extract. Also, I thought the directions were a little hard to understand concerning the ladyfingers. To me, "split" means to split them lengthwise. Not so, they mean cut them in half. That would have been easier!"
"I don't think the directions were very clear about mixing the dry ingredients. Why do you have to beat them? A whole step could be eliminated, by adding the wet ingredients to the dry ones in the blender. That is what I did. It tasted very sour(no sweetener in recipe). So I added Splenda to taste and it is much bett, but I don't think I would make it again. Liz"
"I made this but it did not turn out good at all. I ended up throwing it out. It was too hard. One gelatin packet would probably have been better."
"Well, ladies, I made another attempt at this lemon dessert. I used just 1 packet of gelatin, and used 3 packets of drink mix. For those of you who are diabetic, the Crystal Light drink mix is sugar free, which I found appealing. This time the dessert turned out less dense and more chiffon-like, and had a very good lemon flavor. So, give it a whirl.........I think you'll like it."
