I've decided to be generous and share my "Secret Summer Dessert" recipe with all of you.
This is one of my most requested Summertime desserts and I've made it four or five times over the last few weeks. I lost count.
Then I quit making it because, well,
I just got tired of making it.
It's not very big so it goes fast. My photo of it doesn't do it justice but I'm just not talented like that. You know who you are. The Blogger's that make every dish look so beautiful. I've tried that.
It didn't work for me. Could be because I hate cooking so much that I just do it and serve it up!
This is so good, especially on a hot summer day.
12 Graham Cracker Squares, crushed
3 Large eggs, separated
1 Tablespoon Finely grated lemon peel
1/4 Cup fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/8 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Whipped Cream (Whipped) Or I use
2 Cups thawed Cool Whip
Line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with half of the Graham Cracker crumbs
In a medium saucepan, combine egg yolks, (Reserve whites in a medium glass or metal bowl, chill) lemon peel, lemon juice, 1/4 cup of sugar and salt. Mix well.
Cook over medium heat until mixture just begins to bubble, stirring constantly. It will be the consistency of pudding. Remove from heat and let cool.
Beat egg whites in chilled bowl until frothy. Add 1/4 cup of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.
Fold in cooled lemon mixture and Cool Whip.
Pour into pan and top with remaining Graham Cracker crumbs. Freeze for at least four hours. You will want it to be frozen solid.
For longer storage cover with foil but it usually doesn't last very long!
This tastes like a delicious sweet, lemony ice cream. You will get compliments on this dessert!
No need to thank me just try it, you'll like it!!
I don't share my secrets with just anyone you know!!
