    This was a delicious, light dessert perfect for summer! My 10-yr old daughter helped me make it. The whole family really enjoyed this, even my husband who prefers chocolate desserts.

    This recipe is easy, and gets better with age. I have passed it along to several friends and will definitely make it again.

    Made this yesterday for company. After they left, my husband and I finished this fantastic dessert. It was so light and unbelievably delicious. The directions say to use an 8" baking dish - it should be 8"x11" dish. Will definitely make again.

    Very tasty, don't get me wrong, BUT when they say it serves 8, they mean it. The custard was lacking in amount so the next go round, I will be doubling this and also playing around with what kind of cookie I'd use for the crunch since Graham crackers are ok. For presentation purposes, I topped this with fresh raspberries.

    Just to add my voice to the chorus--very easy, very lemony, very delicious. I also found the quantity of custard a little miserly, so went heavy on the first layer and masked the skimpy top layer by finishing it generously with blueberries and sliced strawberries. It was gorgeous and incredibly delicious.

    I hate graham crackers, think you could use vanilla wafers or shortbread cookies instead?

    Wouldn't this be wonderful in individual glasses, using vanilla wafers to make the layers and ending with a topping of fresh strawberries.....

    I thought this was outstanding, easy and very lemony. My husband who usually does not like deserts licked his plate. I have never made custard before and it came out very smooth. I used vanilla wafers, because that is what I had, and it was wonderful. Next time I will double the custard for the 8' pan, I thought it made too little.

    Excellent recipe. Like many posters did, I doubled everything. Very light and easy dessert. Thank you for posting. *MyNameanon learn how to cook and you wouldn't have to use preservative laden ready made items. Also, learn some manners.

    Excellent. Double the whipped cream and garnish it with fresh blueberries topped by a sprinkle of powdered sugar. All the luxury of lemon curd without all the stirring and fear of curdling (thanks to the cornstarch).

    As a child, my grandmother made this wonderful icebox treat, but she called it 'Dessert' and she froze it. I must say, it was always the highlight of weekends spent with her. After sprinkling several crushed graham crackers into two ice cube trays, the custard was poured in, then whipped cream and additional graham cracker crumbs covered the filling. She made it early in the day so by dinner time, they were frozen solid. With great ceremony, Nanny would pull 'Dessert' from the freezer, yank on that metal tray handle and perfect little cubes of tingling lemon sweetness popped from the tray and were then spooned into our bowls. We were allowed two cubes each, so that special treat lasted all weekend long.

    Delicious....made as directed through layering first 1/2 of pudding...topped that with 1/2 cup of blueberries....mixed remaining pudding with half of an 8oz. container of Cool Whip to make a lemon mousse...spread the mousse over the second layer of graham crackers... topped the mousse with 1/2 cup of blueberries and finished off by topping with the remaining 1/2 container of Cool Whip....light and flavorful with the addition of the whipped topping and blueberries

    Very tasty, but disappointed mine looked nothing like the thick layers in the picture. The reviewers that said layers were miserly and portions were small are 100% correct. Anyone making this should at minimum double the custard filling, both for presentation and to enjoy a 2nd serving or leftovers.

    All you need to do is a two layers of graham + lemon pudding + cool whip LOL

    This is perfect for picnics, and potlucks. And if you prefer, you can use Graham cracker crumbs, and place in mason jars.
