This is one of my favorite desserts ever! So easy and beautiful. I love lemon in the spring and this was a perfect Easter dessert. I used Trader Joe’s lemon curd….yummy!
Made this for my best friend and her husband when they came for dinner. He absolutely loves all things lemon. This dessert was a huge hit. He even said this is his new favourite dessert I make.
