Love this recipe - have made it at least a dozen times. Great for dainty trays for showers and Christmas and a refreshing dessert for a summer pot luck. Freezes well too.

Made these for Easter. I knew they would not be lemony enough for us, so I increased the fresh lemon juice to 1/3 cup and decreased the sugar to 1 cup and added 1 tsp of zest. They were OK the day they were made but the bottom was very soggy by the second day and nobody wanted them. I will not make again.

These were excellent. Took them to work and everyone raved. I did use zest of one lemon, gave it a great lemon flavor. Will make again. Great job Mildred. Thank you...I am also from Rockford. Nice to see a fellow neighbor in print.
