Loving Lemon Dessert..

We just celebrated my daughter's birthday and we always let the birthday girl or boy choose
their food items for the day..

For her dessert she wanted Peanut Butter Balls.. and a Lemon dessert.

So here is the Lemon dessert I made for her...


2 pkgs cream cheese
2 sticks of butter
2 Tbsp Coconut oil
2 cups flour
1 container of whipped topping
2 pkg's of lemon pudding
3 cups Milk
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 cup sugar

First I used a pastry cutter to cut in the sticks of butter, and coconut oil.  It will become a
crumbly mixture.

Then pressed it into a 9x13 glass baking dish, and baked at 350 for around 20-25 minutes or until lightly golden brown.. let cool.

Then I beat the cream cheese (which I had on the counter for 30 minutes or so to soften up a little) and sugar together until creamy and spread that over the crust.

Next I whisk the pudding, milk, and lemon Juice together and poured over it.

Lastly add the whip topping.

Place in fridge until set up, and ready to serve.

It was a big success.. 

I think the next time I make one of these desserts, I will cut the sugar down when I add the cream cheese mixture layer in.. or take it out altogether and give that a try. 

I also think this would be really good changed up with another kind of pudding.. butterscotch, choc., vanilla, banana,  you get the idea. :0)

Could also add in nuts.. change the crust to graham crackers or crushed cookies - lots of possibilities
with this one.

I tend to change recipe's often... add this/take out that.
How about you? 
Do you follow recipe's to a T, or do you change it up?

  1. This looks delish! I love lemon so I might have to try this one soon. Oh....I definitely change recipes up to suit me. You're right about endless possibilities with this one also. I'm thinking crushed pecan sandies would make a great crust....:) Now I am craving something sweet....:) Have a blessed Wednesday!
