In the summertime you don't want to be spending loads of time in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove. That is when simple and easy recipes like this one today come in really handy.
Easy Lemon Refrigerator Dessert, with absolutely no cooking involved or needed. If you can use a hand mixer, then you can make this and your family will be so impressed with the end result, they will think you slaved all day!
The base is simply shortbread fingers (store bought) which get soaked in a bit of milk and then layered in a loaf tin . . .
Next a creamy mixture of cream cheese, sugar, lemon juice and heavy cream get whipped together and spread over top.
You cover this and chill it overnight, and presto chango the next day you have a beautiful dessert that was quick to make, and is most delicious to eat! You can spoon whatever you want over top. Caramel sauce, chocolate sauce, fresh fruit, whatever you are wanting to use that is sweet and or fruity . . . today I spooned over some homemade strawberry jam! It went down a real treat!
