Summer sure inspires a lot of great recipe ideas with barbeques and picnics in mind. Many of them include salads and desserts that call for fresh local vegetables and fruits. This "Lemon Lush Dessert" recipe idea is the perfect accompaniment to summer time grilling recipes, and makes for a super sunny and light dessert.
This summer dessert recipe is something our dear blogger Alli has been making for years with her grandma. She now makes it for her own family, ensuring that she starts with Country Time Lemonade, then grilled pork chops with barbeque sauce. She swears by this dessert and says it was always the perfect way to end the meal.
Some of the ingredients for this lovely dessert recipe include Jello-O Lemon Pudding, cream cheese, and cool whip. Just think of all the layers we’ve got here. There’s an intriguing bottom layer that is very similar to shortbread cookie dough. This is to give the entire dish a little extra texture, and to hold it all together! Next, there is the creamy cream cheese layer, followed by the tangy lemon pudding layer. And just when you think you’ve died and gone to Heaven, you top it all off with some frothy Cool Whip!
After making this simple lemon dessert recipe with tender loving care, you'll then want to cover it up and put it in your fridge for a while. This will help it to chill properly, so all of the ingredients will set and gel together in wondrous ways. Take it out just before you are ready to serve it up. Everyone will be so surprised and impressed. It looks so pretty too! For the full recipe and lots of photos you'll really want to check out the “Cupcake Diaries”, the wonderful food blog and website where we found it.
