Grandma's Lemon Lush

A couple months ago, I came across a batch of old school recipes that my grandma Millie had written up. She was a fantastic cook - everyone loved her meals and desserts! And since I have yet to cook any of her recipes, I figured this weekend would be a good time to start. Since we will be pretty busy tending the garden this weekend, I wanted to make something that was quick and easy. This recipe for her Lemon Lush was just that! Extremely tasty and light, this dessert is perfect for spring time!


Grandma Millie's Recipe:

Lemon Lush
(serves approx. 12)

Crust -

1 stick Oleo (margarine)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup self rising flour

First, melt the margarine and mix with pecans and flour. Then, press ingredients in 9 1/2 x 13 glass pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until golden. Then, let cool. 

Topping -

18 oz. cream cheese
19 oz. whipped topping (Cool Whip)
1 cup sugar
1 can of lemon pie filling

Place cream cheese in mixing bowl, add sugar and beat well. Then, stir in whipped topping. After, layer 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture on crust and then layer 1/2 of the lemon pie filling on top of that. Repeat this step by layering the rest of the cream cheese mixture, and then topping it off with the remaining lemon pie filling. 

* Refrigerate several hours before cutting. *


~ Enjoy! ~
