Treat yourself to a little piece of sunshine! Our Luscious Lemon Squares look sunny and bright and have lots of lemony flavor. This is a great one to make for a picnic or summer potluck, 'cause it's a no-bake, make-ahead dessert. Plus, everyone will love it!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (12-ounce) can low-fat evaporated milk
  • 1 (3-ounce) package sugar-free lemon gelatin
  • 3/4 cup stevia
  • 1 1/3 cup boiling water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cups reduced fat graham cracker crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 4 drops yellow food color (optional)
What To Do:
  1. Pour evaporated milk into a small metal bowl, cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, dissolve gelatin and stevia in boiling water. Stir in lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate about 1 hour, or until syrupy.
  3. In a small bowl, combine crumbs and margarine; set aside 2 tablespoons for garnish. Press remaining crumbs into bottom of a 9- x 13-inch baking dish.
  4. Beat evaporated milk until soft peaks form. Beat gelatin until tiny bubbles form. Fold evaporated milk into gelatin, then pour over crust and sprinkle with reserved crumbs.
  5. Cover and refrigerate 6 hours, or until set. Cut into squares.

This looks like a really tasty dessert and I can't wait to try it! A couple of questions...do you have to use a metal bowl? Will a glass one do? What does the metal bowl do that a different bowl wouldn't? And if I can't find graham crackers (they aren't easily found where I live) can you suggest a substitute?

Hi there! The Test Kitchen says that it's okay to use a glass bowl in this recipe. The metal bowl is what helps to whip cream faster and better. If you cannot find graham crackers, we suggest using shortbread or similar cookie will work well in this recipe. :) Enjoy!

To Lovely Lolly....Stevia is an artificial sweetener like Splenda

Looks delicious but what is "stevia" please? Sheila

Stevia is NOT an artificial sweetener like Splenda - Splenda is made among other horrible things with chemicals and plastics. Stevia is a plant sweetner - I have been using Stevia for 12 years on the advice of my naturapath. I am Diabetic and it does not affect my blood sugar at all and, there are NO side affects - IT'S A NATURAL SWEETENER! As long as you buy the pure Stevia not the knock offs. To me, it taste just like sugar. Wish there were more recipes using stevia - then diabetics could have more choices. It's a good HEALTHY REPLACMENT - SGAR IS NOT HEALTHY FOR ANYONE.
