I recently got the chance to review The Fresh Egg Cookbook from Storey Publishing and when I came across this recipe I just had to try it out. My kids are always begging for desert and since I had a ton of eggs from the farm and had just picked up some lemons at the farmer’s market this was the perfect choice! Incredibly easy to make….the hardest part is waiting for them to cool!
