This Lemon Cream Cheese Pake (Pie/Cake) , as I like to call it, breaks every one of my rules for recipes I will post on my blog. First of all, some of the ingredients are boxed rather than homemade. Next, this dessert isn’t exactly a healthy option (though there could be worse) and finally, there is no real cultural connection to this recipe. But… it was one of my mother’s favorite desserts to make and for that reason, I am sharing it with you.
My Mother loved to make desserts. She was the queen of dessert making in my family and every single dessert she made was delicious. Many of her recipes were passed down from her mother, like her Homemade Apple Pie, and her Old Fashioned Molasses Cake from 1942. But this Lemon Cream Cheese dessert was one she had been making for at least 35 years when I was just a kid. I wanted to honor the memory of my mom by posting her favorite dessert for all of you to enjoy. Thanks, mom. I miss you!
