No Bake Lemon Dessert

I’m willing to bet that at one time, your grandmother serve you their famous lemon meringue pie and of course, it was delicious. This recipe is the recipe for that dessert that only your grandma knows how to make and it will make about 6 servings with generous portions. You can make this dessert all year round.


Eating lemon meringue pie is one of my earliest memory with my grandma and I will always treasure it. Of course, it’s delicious, but it also has that homey feeling. Just sitting on the porch with this delicious dessert or on the dinner table with everyone, it’s just the best.


This dessert is already so tasty as is, but you can add your personal touches if you like. Sprinkle some colorful chopped fresh fruit, drizzle with a little bit of honey or anything that your family or friends like.
