Personal Notes:
Again, I think this is probably identical to the pistachio dessert and Better Than Sex desserts, but because Lemon Lush is a well known dessert all on its own, I thought I'd include it as well. As I recall, this may have been the original dessert Mom made it for her card parties when we were kids. Remember those? Always a lot of loud yacking, arguing and squealing while we were trying to sleep! I think they make lime pudding now too and this would be excellent as a key lime dessert. Yum!
