A buttery shortbread crust, a layer of sweetened cream cheese, homemade lemon curd and whipped topping make up this Layered Lemon Dessert. It’s completely fabulous!
Easter snuck on me way too fast. I realized the other day I haven’t shared any ideas for Easter desserts. So today I’m sharing one of my favorite lemon desserts ever. It’s simple to make, light and so refreshing.
My friend brought to to my son’s open house when he left on his mission back in October of 2014. At the request of my mom, sister and aunt I had to get the recipe. So I did and it’s taken me this long to share it with you.
I blame it on the gazillion other recipes I’ve come across and had to make and then I forget about all the other recipes I’ve loved and made and want/need/mean to share.
Now if the thought of making homemade lemon curd causes sheer panic, don’t let it, this stuff is so simple to make. You literally put everything in a pan and whisk it over medium low heat. It’s that simple. Even my boys could make this. Ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration. But it really is simple.
I like to make the lemon curd the day before so it’s nice and cold and then it’s one less step to worry about the day I make the dessert.
This is a perfect dessert for Easter, spring, summer or whenever you’re in the mood for something luscious and lemony.
Oh how I love this dessert!
