I’ve always said that the recipes that are handed down from generation to generation is truly the ones that I get excited for because you know they are crowd pleasers throuhg and through. You can’t really go wrong with them! I’ve gone through about all of my family’s recipes that are staples and now I’m officially moving onto my hub’s family. I mean that’s why I married him and all obviously. Well that and he’s a hottie. Right? Yup. Puke.

Anyways his family is full of amazing recipes too. I just love learning about their history and the memories that go with them because that honestly is half the fun for me. Then I cross my fingers, attempt the recipe, and hope it goes well because obviously their is a standard to live up to. A high, high standard.

I attended an evening bridal shower for Jason’s cousin’s soon to be bride. Confused yet? Just go with it was a bridal shower and someone that I’m sorta related to was getting married and all will be good. After that fun festivities of a few games and opening of presents we were treated to a delicious treat.

Wait, back up, presents. Can I just say I want to have another bridal shower? I mean that stuff that they get it awesome! I seriously considered keeping the present I bought. Those pans, man those pans, truly quality there. I sure hope they went to a loving home because they almost didn’t make it. Just saying….

If you want to send me some bridal presents I’m all down with that.

Anyways, back to the recipe since that’s why you came right?

Grandma's Lemon Raspberry Sherbet Dessert ~ Salty Crust Topped with Creamy Raspberry Filling and a Tart Lemon Topping! As we set down to our seats at the table with massive, gigantic pieces of this amazing Lemon Raspberry Sherbet Dessert the stories started flowing and I was touched by the smiles around the table. The story goes that the hub’s grandma made this recipe often and it was always in the same Tupperware container. In fact she made it so much that there were lines etched on the bottom of the container from cutting it each time. I mean that tells you right there it was well received every time she made it!

I can see why. The amazing crust has a salty flavor from the Ritz Crackers then it’s piled high with the ice cream and sherbet for a sweet touch. Then it’s topped with a tart lemon topping. I mean all those flavors melding together in your mouth is pretty much like heaven on earth. Perfect for the summertime when you need a refreshing treat to cool off with!

    Hi, I just made this. I am curious does the recipe really call for full eggs in the curd? I have never seen a lemon curd recipe that calls for the egg. I cooked it long on a low temperature and it would not set up and eventually the whites became cooked. I didn’t use it on the dessert I made another with only egg yolks and the dessert was amazing. It will become a new family favorite for us.

    • Julie Evink


      I just checked the recipe and yes it does call for whole eggs and I didn’t have a problem. Not sure why that happened! Interesting!
