A few handy convenience items hurry along the prep for these creamy bars with a vanilla wafer crust. They get their sweet-tart flavor from lemon gelatin, sherbet and pudding mix. They're not only fun to make with my grandchildren, but they're delicious, too. —Joyce Speerbrecher, Grafton, Wisconsin

"I also couldn't find lemon sherbet on the day I was making this, so I subsituted lime sherbet and changed one of the gelatins to lime, and voila, we had lemon-lime squares. They were delicious!"
