How do I make it ?
Select All
Step 1
Grate zest from 1 lemon; set aside. Cut both lemons in half; squeeze to measure 7 Tbsp. juice. Mix milks in small bowl. Add lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. at a time, stirring with fork after each addition until well blended. (Mixture will thicken to a soft custard-like consistency.) Stir in zest.
Step 2
Arrange 6 wafers on bottom of 8x4-inch loaf pan, trimming if necessary to make snug fit; cover with 1 cup milk mixture, spreading to completely cover wafers. Repeat layers twice. Cover with remaining wafers.
Step 3
Refrigerate overnight. Unmold onto plate just before serving. Spread Cool Whip over top of dessert.
Kraft Kitchen Tips!
Important Note
For best results, prepare dessert with regular sweetened condensed and evaporated milks. Using low fat products can result in a softer texture.
How to Easily Unmold Dessert
For easy unmolding of dessert, line empty pan with plastic wrap before using to prepare dessert.
Cooking Know-How
As the dessert refrigerates overnight, the wafers will soften as they absorb the milk mixture.
