Lemon Delight

....and it was a DELIGHT! I LOVED THIS SOOOO MUCH!!!!!

I got the recipe from my bff MaryRuth. You can go HERE to get a printable version. {scroll down to the bottom}


Lemon Delight

Graham Cracker Crust:

3 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs

2/3 cup white sugar

3/4 cup butter, melted

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional) (I use cinnamon graham crackers... so yummy)

  1. Mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar, melted butter and cinnamon until well blended . Press mixture into 9x13 pan.
  2. Bake at 375 degrees for 7 minutes. Cool.

Layers:

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

1 cup powdered sugar

2 (3.4 ounce) packages instant lemon pudding mix (we like a stronger lemon flavor so we use Lemon pie filling instead... found on the baking aisle).

3 1/2 cups milk (do not use milk if you use pie filling... milk is for the pudding only!)

1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth and well blended. Spread evenly over the cooled crust.

In another bowl, whisk together the lemon pudding mix and milk for 3 to 5 minutes. Spread over the cream cheese layer.

Chill until set, then top with whipped topping
