Lemon Delight

Angela (Grammy) Derby


This is a wonderful variation on the Four-Layer Dessert that I usually make. The family was really pleased with the taste of the lemon, and I'll bet adding a layer of raspberries or blueberries would be a perfect touch with the lemon. Oh! Just thought of banana pudding with a layer of fresh bananas. You could try this with whatever flavor instant pudding floats your boat and whatever you'd like to add as part of your layers.

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
