"easy to make, if you do not have lemonade concentrate, you can substitute a 1/2 cup lemon juice and mix with sweetened condensed milk and continue with recipe. This dessert is light and airy and complimentary with any meal."

"easy to make and everyone loved it! I used a regular baked pastry pie shell instead of the graham crust."
