My husbands Aunt Shelia ,gave me a cook book from her church ,and on the inside handwritten was this recipe. There was no name on the recipe .I have made it a few times ,it is very rich ,but ohhh so good .Very Refreshing. The original recipe does not specify fresh lemons ,so I use a good grade of bottled lemon juice...A perfect summer dessert .
Personal Note :I use Butter in Layer 1
