Tuesday Treats: Lemon Lasagna

Ah, March 20th, the spring (or vernal) equinox. That means winter is over, spring is here, and all those daffodils blooming in my flowerbeds will be giving away to tulips, roses, and bluebells before too much longer. Since we’re looking forward to warmer weather, I thought I’d share a springtime dessert–one that was shared by my friend, Karrie. I haven’t made this but it looks totally yummy.

LEMON LASAGNA

Lemon Lasagna – 4 layers of goodness including a Lemon Oreo crust, cream cheese layer, lemon pudding layer and topped with cream! It’s DELICIOUS!

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12-15

INGREDIENTS
1 package Lemon (or Golden) Oreos
6 TB unsalted butter, melted
1 8 oz. PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese (softened)
½ cup Margarine or butter
1 cup powdered sugar
1 large container cool whip – 16 oz. – or you can make your own cream
2 – 3.9 oz packages of lemon instant pudding
3 cups milk
lemons (for garnish)

INSTRUCTIONS
Begin by crushing your Oreos. For a very fine mixture, place Oreos in your food processor. Place in a ziploc baggie and add your melted butter. Mix until it is well combined.

Press into the bottom of a 9×13 pan spreading out to cover the entire bottom of the pan.

In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, margarine/butter, powdered sugar and ½ of the cool whip. Blend well and pour over your Lemon Oreo Crust.

In another bowl, make your pudding by adding your milk to your bowl and instant pudding. Whisk together until pudding thickens. Pour over the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for at least 5 minutes.

Top off with the rest of your Cool Whip.

Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. Add lemon slices and ENJOY! Karrie shared THIS WEBSITE where she found the recipe. Please go check it out for more pictures and a video of how to make it.

This is one of those fancy desserts that looks like it was made by a dessert chef. That pretty much leaves all of my heroines out of the mix. But you know who makes it? One Dillon Tate, the youngest of the Tate brothers, musician extraordinaire and a man of surprising talents. Of course, his brothers are really going to rib him about this. Dillon doesn’t have a book yet but you can read about him in Deacon’s book, THE COWBOY’S CHRISTMAS PROPOSITION.

And if anyone is interested, I was interviewed by Fiona McVie on her blog. HERE’S THE LINK if you want to go check it out! 🙂

  1. My daffodils are all leaves and no flowers. =o\ I guess I should be happy the deer haven’t eaten them yet.

    Cool, a recipe for one of your guys! Sounds yummy!

      Daffodils are weird. Last year, I had one clump with two blooms and all the rest were just leaves. This year? I’ve got like six clumps blooming. 🙄

      Now I’ll have to remember that cooking is one of Dillon’s talents when I get to his book. 😆

Got something to say?
