    Our family LOVED this dessert. My children enjoyed helping and especially enjoyed eating. We will definitely make this dessert again sometime.

    while the flavor is good, the consistency is a little sticky. I prefer a tart that wont stick to your knife when cutting or your fork when eating

    This recipe seemed simple but ended up fairly complicated when my first batch of curd didn't come out right. We were doubling the recipe for an Easter brunch and I think my co-cook did the math wrong....we ended up with not enough white chocolate for one thing! So, our end result was tasty but very, very tart, and not as firm as in the photo. I think if you actually follow the recipe, it would be great. Also, it's a quick recipe but only if your lemon curd is ready to go, and if you allow time for chilling, so factor both into your preparations schedule. We didn't attempt the spun-sugar garnishes.

    This was a simple recipe and the result was great! I would probably skip all the decoration on the top in the future, it added a lot of fuss to an already tasty dessert. I also substituted the lemon curd with just lemon pie filling and my family loved it.

    As I prepare for Easter dinner I realize I had not reviewed this recipe since I made it last. When I want a lemon dessert this is the one I think of. It doesn't have that fake sweetened condensed milk taste that so many other lemon desserts have. I use meyer lemons for the curd but purchased lemon curd would work fine. It doesn't need any decorating other than a bit of whipped cream. It is perfect.
