This came together very easily. I used Annie's Bunny Grahams for the crust. I was looking for the tang of the lemon but it was a wee bit too sweet for that. I did not get a chance to take a photo but it was pretty. Topped each piece with a dollop of whipped cream. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all of us. Thanks for sharing Muffinlady!
