What You'll Need?

250 grams of all-purpose flour.

163 grams of chopped pecans.

1/4 teaspoon of salt.

226 grams of melted butter.

226 grams of softened cream cheese.

453 grams of confectioners sugar.

453 grams of chosen whipped topping (cool whip or whipped cream).

446 grams of lemon pie filling (lemon curd).

How To Make Lemon Delight:

In a bowl, combine the flour, crushed pecans and salt until they are well mixed. You'll then want to stir in the melted butter, this is to create your crust.

Once the crust is mixed, press the mixture into a baking dish that has not been greased. You'll want to press this down firmly so that it acts as the base layer for the rest of your dessert. Bake this layer at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

While the first layer is cooling, beat together the cream cheese and sugar until the mixture is smooth. Then fold in the cool whip to make it extra fluffy.

Spread half of this mixture on top of the crust, then on top of the cream cheese layer you'll want to add the lemon pie filling, and again add the rest of the first mixture on top of this.

Store this in the refrigerator until you're ready to eat.


For a nut-free version, try using crushed digestive biscuits as your base.

If searching for gluten-free alternatives, Bob's Red Mill offers a great gluten-free all-purpose flour mix. Or, you could try making your own mix by using brown rice flour, white rice flour and tapioca flour.

There are also many ways to make this delicious lemon delight recipe a vegan recipe to share with all your friends and family. Try using a dairy-free version of the cream cheese and whipped topping.

If you don't want to use the cheese layer, you can create a meringue using egg whites, sugar and lemon juice.


If you want to spice up the dessert a little, there are many other ways to make your lemon puddings more interesting.

Try adding lemon juice, or lemon zest (or even lime!) into your creamy mixture for an extra citrus kick. You could also add lemon zest as a topping for extra prettiness and flavour.

Vanilla would also work well in the cream mixture, adding a sweet twist to the recipe.

Raspberries and white chocolate work exceptionally well with lemon desserts. Use them as a topping for a flavour profile that your guests will adore. Plus, it'll look stunning in pictures.
