No. I just found this recipe today when I got my Senior Magazine this morning. Do you see a problem in the recipe? If so please let me know.

I am up to my ears with appointments and other events this week. But I will probably make them next week. One thing I will change for my own preference is that I will use lemon extract instead of vanilla. It just enhances the lemon flavor. I have done that in several other lemon recipes.

Vanilla really cuts the tartness of the lemon flavor. I'd go with lemon extract too. I really like the tartness.

I always use the lemon extract for a lemon recipe. It really brings out the lemon flavor. I made a scratch lemon pudding once using the lemon extract, and it was a huge hit. I should have doubled the recipe because my kids were fighting over it. Who was going to scrape out the pan and get the last drop. I got it and that ended the fighting.
