"I've had this recipe saved with an over the top review by the poster. Wish I'd read these reviews before making. Definitely needs more lemon curd and less whipped cream. I'd make again with those changes. I'm taking it to a potluck tomorrow and will see what others think!!!"

"I am giving this five stars even though I haven't made it yet. The other reviews say it is good, so it must be. I find the directions for the lady fingers confusing and am wondering why Taste of Home hasn't responded to these questions. Do you look at the feedback on these recipes?"

"SOLUTION TO CRUNCHY LADYFINGERS TO STAND UP: First using stick of butter grease pan. Place in freezer 5 to 10 min. Dab honey on side of ladyfinger that will touch the pan abt size of a dime. Do not let ladyfingers touch. Finished, place all in freezer until you pour in contents."

"To die for! Easy, quick, delicious, more than delicious! And I didn't let it sit in the fridge overnight....just a couple of hours. It is my new favorite recipe for showing off!"

"For those who have made this recipe, did you use whole ladyfingers or split ladyfingers? I understand to hold out 5 for the middle of the filling. Just need to know if they were whole or split. Thanks."

"I would definitely only use 2 cups heavy whipping cream and at least 1 cup lemon curd. I made my own lemon curd, for a great recipe go to: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/lemon-curd-recipe/index.html

(or search for Ina Garten's lemon curd). Also, if you can't find lady fingers, I used Pepperidge Farm French Vanilla Pirouettes cut into thirds for the sides and ground up with butter for the bottom crust."

"I think the word 'split' means what i call 'divided'.Meaning the ingredient - in this case the 2 pkg. of ladyfingers- are divided into 5 ladyfingers and the rest, used in 2 different parts of the recipe. Just responding to a comment somebody else said. Hope this helps. Jan."

"I while the idea is simple, the directions are lacking...one can't "split" ladyfingers, at least the ones available in kansas. And it took 6 hands to hold the ladyfingers up while scooping in the filling. It was delicious....but I'll figure out another way to make it."
