The great and fun gathering of the usual suspects last Saturday night not only featured a pretty good meal, but we also capped off the evening with a return of the Girl Scout cookie-inspired lemon shortbread cheesecake, that is deeply loved and fondly sought after in this household. So I had to give in and offer it up, which might actually have made a few folks—and their bellies—moderately happy.
It's a no-bake wonder, although I deviate from the recipe author's suggestion to freeze it, finding that simply chilling it for several hours is sufficient to help it set up and be cuttable and servable. And easily digestible!
The Girl Scout munchkins in front of the Harris Teeter, and also the neighbor children who came 'round to ring the doorbell, have been impossible to resist during this winter's cookie-pushing period...completely because of this easy and pleasing concoction.
