Lemon dessert in glass redesigned for big family

How can a lemon dessert in glass be redesigned for a big family?

Being a mom of five kids I like easy, no-bake desserts… for example desserts in glass. They are very popular my only problem with them I haven’t got nice, identical and quite large glasses… then again I have a large glass bowl. So I redesigned my favorite lemon dessert in glass for my big bowl. And here is the result…

  • 400 g coconut digestive biscuits
  • 2 cups whipping cream

  12. Add a half of the whipped cream as the third layer.
