Please include links to print some of these recipes! My computer is nowhere near my kitchen, and I like to print my favorites and keep them in 3 ring binders. Thank you.

I just love lemon desserts. Usually light and always refreshing and this Lemon Afternoon Delight was a perfect treat to serve to the group of friends who came around for coffee this afternoon. It was really quick to make and easy to do too which is alwasys good. And there were compliments aplenty so I will definitely be making this again.

Editors can you change the above ingredient to read Instant lemon Jello PUDDING. I don't think Jello is the right ingredient. Lemon recipes are great Spring/Easter treats and make great potluck dishes for holiday and family get-togethers. It's always nice to have a non-chocolate dessert to offer.

I have tasted this before, your going to love it.it is out of this world

That would be INSTANT LEMON PUDDING (Jell-O Brand). If you can't find it, you can add some lemon extract to instant vanilla pudding. And yes, CHILL for at least 2 hours or overnight. You can also, make this into a pie...pressing the crumb mixture into a pie plate and proceeding as instructed OR save some time and use a premade, prebaked pie crust...graham, cookie...etc. Remember, you can switch it up and use any flavor instant pudding. Example, premade chocolate (Oreo) pie shell, cream cheese mixture and chocolate pudding...... or premade graham pie shell, cream cheese mixture (fold in some mini marshmallows) and chocolate pudding ...S'mores!

What the heck is Instant Lemon Jello? Never heard of it!

It seems to me like it is missing a step. Refrigerate? For how long? Does the pan need to be "prepared" or not? That being said, it does sound good. :)

do they mean instant jello pudding or regular jello?

It says "instant lemon jello."
