"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

A delicious dessert that Mom loved because of it's light texture and cool flavor. We were both lemon lovers so we always traded recipes that had lemon ingredients.
