    Delicious and simple dessert. I used a tub of cool whip instead of the heavy cream and just folded it in. Make sure you add a handful of fresh raspberries on the top--brings much needed freshness and tartness to the dish.

    A wonderful, easy and versatile recipe. Makes a great cake filling and even better is a lemon mousse pie with graham cracker crust. I make this over and over.
