Layered Citrus Dessert Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 lemons, divided
  • 1 can (300 mL) sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 can (370 mL) evaporated milk
  • 24 Honey Maid Wafers, divided
  • 1 cup thawed Cool Whip Whipped Topping

Instructions

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Refrigerate  overnight. Unmold onto plate just before serving. Spread Cool Whip over top of dessert.
