"This elegant irresistible sweet is from my mom's handwritten collection, one of my all time favourites. An excellent addition to the serving tray, appealing on the holiday platter and great for those special occasions you want to wow. Looks and tastes just as great untinted but as my mom always reminds me "always use the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon when making the icing" Realemon will work but she's right - fresh lemon juice makes for awesome!"

I'm not a good baker, so when a sweets recipe turns out for me, it is a keeper. I brought these to a family gathering and they dissapeared in no time. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, I will be making this again. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag game.
