    The combination of grapes and lemon cream is wonderful. However to save lots of time just make the lemon cream and cut the grapes in small chunks and blend together. Served with Fritos scoops for salt and sweet flavor. Every lady at my party asked for the recipe.

    This is wonderful! Have made for several parties and everyone loved it. When in a hurry, just cut grapes in half and pipe filling on top.
