my mom has made this recipe (under a different name) for years. She has made it with chocolate or pistachio pudding for a different twist! She also doubles the recipe and makes it in a 9 x 13 pan for parties and such.



The title of this recipe says it all. Fantastic!



My children and I really enjoyed this recipe. We all love food with lemons. I however did make a couple of changes. I added more cream cheese in the bottm layer and left the cool whip for the topping. It was delicious!
