    Something else. Instead of one large dish, i poured the mixture into a bunch of small tart shells - it turned out wonderfully!  -  29 Sep 2008


    this is sooo yummy that i made it twice in a week. the first time was for my daughter to take to school for a morning tea...apparently is got devoured with people fighting over it. and the teacher asked me for the recipe. it is super easy to make and i will make it again and again (although mine did not really resemble the picture). thankyou for sharing it. it goes great with whipped cream.  -  12 Aug 2010


    I like to have something lemon for dessert on Easter, and since I don't do meringue well I decided to try this in place of lemon meringue pie. I expected something more like a pie, which this is not. However, my review is based on the actual product, not my expectations. I thought the taste of the lemon was excellent--nice and tart. I think the secret to the pastry is rubbing the butter in well and pressing the crumbs down firmly to form the base. I thought the pastry was a little too sweet. Personally, I don't think the lemon layer is thick enough in relation to the base, and if I made this again I might double the filling amount.  -  29 Sep 2008
