Two years ago I mentioned meeting a lovely woman named Megan (pronounced MEE-gan) on a bus ride to visit my parents. She introduced me to the wonderful world of icebox cakes. I had heard of them but didn’t really know what they were. Basically, you alternate layers of cookies with whipped cream or mousse and put it in the whole thing in the refrigerator overnight.

Apparently, icebox cakes were big in the 50s and I am noticing they are starting to make a huge comeback. I mean who doesn’t want to be able to make a gorgeous dessert without turning on the oven?

The nuts break up the intensity of straight lemon curd, still leaving you with a pungent lemon flavor but one that doesn’t cause your lips to pucker. It also tempers that day glow yellow which is so pretty but not something I am 100% comfortable eating.
