Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to make with inexpensive ingredients. I have made this dessert many times, it is a firm favourite with friends and family. I usually whisk the cream cheese,condensed milk, lemon zest and juice until it has double in size. I find that leaving it overnight in the fridge gives a firmer set making it easier to serve.A keeper for sure.
