Sweet Saturday ~ Lemon Fluff Dessert

Welcome to Sweet Saturday at Charlene Blogs.  This week we're keeping it cool and fluffy. *wink*  I got this recipe from  Thank you Taste of Home for allowing us to share them. :)

Here's a quick, light, lip-smacking treat with a lovely lemon flavor.  Thank you Leola McKinney of Morgantown, West Virginia for this recipe.  It's diabetic friendly so I hope you all can enjoy it. *smile

Taste of Home comes up with some good ones...I was so afraid that you were going to say'frozen whipped topping'.I find it hard to talk to people who consider that as part of a recipe.

Oh I hope you enjoy it, Kay Dee. So Yummy. :)

Lol, Tonette! Now, what do you have against frozen whipped topping? I'm so glad you decided to talk to me. :D

You have lemon trees, Louisa? Oh, lucky you! Definitely save this one then!

Thanks for stopping by, ladies, and commenting. It's great to hear from you. :)
