Lemon Lush

Here is a dessert that is just about perfect for a hot summer day…not that we’ve had too many of those this year. But I’m going to share it with you now because my prediction is that we are going to be slammed with the heat in September. You know the sunshine and hot, hot weather we should have been getting the last six weeks? Yep. That’s what I’m talking about.

I have had this recipe for so many years that it is ridiculous. I’m not even going to tell you how many ‘cause I just see no good sense in embarrassing myself. I do remember though, when I first got it. My sister Elaine and I thought it was the bomb. We could not get enough of it! Oh, we tried making it with chocolate pudding (yum) and butterscotch pudding (yum) and pistachio (not so yum for some reason). Remember those experiments, Elaine? :-)

But for a summertime cookout we kept on coming back to the lemon version. It is just so refreshing! And so simple! Definitely a “keeper” in our book.

Sure hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
