Lemon Bar Trifle
Total TimePrep: 35 min. + chilling
Everyone loved this! I also cut the powdered sugar down to 2 cups instead of 3 after reading other reviews.
This is fantastic! I also cut the sugar in the cream cheese layer to 1.5 cups. I made this for a family gathering and assembled just before serving.
Absolutely delicious! I made it for my daughter's birthday. I did cut the confectioners' sugar in the cream cheese layer to 1 or 1.5 cups. 3 cups would have been way too much. I also used real whipped cream in that layer rather than whipped topping. The other change I made was to beat the egg yolks and water together for the lemon filling, enabling me to skip the step of combining the hot mixture with the egg yolks. It all worked out well and was a hit with the family.
I have made this 3 times . It is fantastic, even the time I didn't get the lemon layer cooked long enough. I just kept it refrigerated then. I don't have a trifle bowl, so I used a large oblong plastic container to assemble it. I did two layers of each. Any left overs I have frozen in individual portions or enough for two. It freezes so well. Love the lemon flavor. Only change I made was to use 1-1/2 to 2 cups powdered sugar with the cream cheese.
Really good, nice lemon flavor and beautiful presentation. Took it to a party and everyone loved it. It makes up nicely in individual portions as well.
My entire family ADORES this recipe, as does my work family :)
very good and a pretty dessert to make for company!
This is a wonderful recipe, very rich. A little time consuming, but I will make again. It makes a pretty dish and a lot of people asked for the recipe.
I gave this recipe 3 stars because it was WAY too sweet. My guests all enjoyed the shortbread layer and the lemon layer, but the cream cheese layer with 3 cups of confectioners sugar overwhelmed the recipe. I would make this recipe again, but would decrease the sugar to 1 cup. That would make all the difference. I also added some sliced strawberries to the layers and found that to be a wonderful addition.
Sounds wonderful - if using cans of lemon pie fill - what size are the cans?
