Summer Treat



This recipe dates back to my childhood. I remember my mom making this when we were growing up. My dad has always been a fan of anything with lemon in it, so this was a frequent favorite come summertime. It is so simple and is perfect when you want a light summer dessert. It comes from a cookbook from Miss Daisy's Tearoom in Franklin, Tennessee. Though I am fairly certain the tearoom isn't around anymore, this cookbook is still available. Enjoy!
