    Hi there at Martha Stewart! It would be so great if you could make all the measurements in the recipes in metric AND imperial/ US. A lot of timesaving for everybody from Europe. Thanks

    This is a simple dessert and very good. Next time I prepare this, I will add a raspberry topping or blueberry lemon topping before serving. Either way though, a real keeper!

    Wow, I made these with orange zest and a little juice, adding some orange extract to bump up the flavor. Didn't have any graham crackers so I used Vanilla Wafers. They were out of this world. Served them with a dollop of whipped cream and a curled orange slice. BIG hit! For ease of slicing, unwaxed dental floss works great, but here's a link to purchase a wire cheese slicer that I use all the time:

    I made this using Neufchatel instead of cream cheese, and Clementines instead of lemons. Fabulous! Next time, maybe grapefruits and substitute Splenda? *Tip* Use unwaxed and unflavored dental wax to cut into pieces-works great!

    I made these last night, substituting neufchatel for the cream cheese and they were delicious!! Allow for longer than the 3 hours that they have listed though. I started mine at 3:30 and we ate them at 8:30.

    Would I be able to substitute key lime juice for lemon?
