Lemons are a wonderful refreshing addition to any dish. Here are three lemon desserts.
1 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C plus 2 TBS chopped pecans, divided
1 stick butter, softened
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 C confectioners’ sugar
1 8 oz. Cool Whip, divided
2 3.4 oz. pkgs. lemon instant pudding mix
2-2/3 C milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, 1/2 C pecans, and butter in medium bowl and mix well. Press onto bottom of an 11×8-inch baking dish. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let stand to cool. Place cream cheese in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set at medium speed until fluffy. Add confectioners’ sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy. Add 1 C Cool Whip to cream cheese mixture and fold in gently. Spread over cooled crust.
Combine pudding mix and milk in a medium bowl. Beat until thickened. Spread on top of cream cheese layer. Top with remaining Cool Whip. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Chill, covered, for 1 hour. Store any leftovers in refrigerator.
1 pkg. lemon cake mix (regular size)
1 C crisp rice cereal
1/2 C butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (dough will be crumbly). Shape into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute; remove from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: about 4 dozen.
Lemon blueberry triffle
3 C fresh blueberries, divided
2 cans (15-3/4 oz. each) lemon pie filling
2 C (8 oz.) lemon yogurt
1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 oz.), cut into 1-in. cubes
1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed
lemon slices and fresh mint, optional
Set aside 1/4 cup blueberries for garnish. In a large bowl, combine pie filling and yogurt. In a 3-1/2-qt. serving or trifle bowl, layer a third of cake cubes, lemon mixture and blueberries. Repeat layers twice. Top with whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish with reserved blueberries, and lemon and mint if desired. Yield: 12-14 servings.
Thought – I wonder if my dog always follows me into the bathroom when I have to go potty because I always follow out him outside when he does and he just thinks that’s how it works.
