“Great make-ahead, lemon no bake dessert. As the dessert refrigerates overnight, the wafers sofen and absorb the milk. From Kraft Canada. Do not use low fat products; the result will not be the same. Time includes overnight refrigeration time. Posted exactly as written on Kraft Canada website. Please read the review from 2 Blue for helpful tips on can sizes and lemon juice.”
