Creamy Lemon Supreme - Easter Dessert

Creamy Lemon Supreme Dessert

Happy Easter!  Hope you had a wonderful day!  We just got back from our friends and I'm feeling a little lot full!  Steph had some delicious food and it was great to visit with her and her family.  I was requested to bring this dessert and was happy to do so.

The ingredients


The crust is started by finely chopping the lemon sandwich cookies


It is mixed with melted butter and pressed into a 9" springform pan.  Next cut 6 thin slices of lemon and cut those in half and line around the pan



Filling is made and spread into the pan


and a lemon cooked pudding is poured on top and chilled about 6 hours to set up


I made this the night before and we served it for dessert late this afternoon - so good - so lemony!
