Today I am going to share with you one of my guilty pleasures, or should I say, an entire category of guilty pleasures! No disrespect to dulce de leche or arequipe, but I adore desserts that are a combination of citrus and sweet, and this Postre de Limón is sweet, tangy, creamy and absolutely delicious!
This dessert is very quick and easy to make, which is what I love the most about it. Every bite of this dessert sends you to heaven, it's simply irresistible! I'll be posting different variations of this pie in the future, so stay tuned...
