This is a Southern favorite in my household. It is one of those desserts that reminds me of Christmas, because Mama, Made 3 or 4 of these during the holidays, and we always enjoyed them. I made these during the holidays, froze two and kept one out to serve. I just love the hint of lemon in this recipe. It is one of my many favorite desserts.
