Lemon Lasagna

Lemon Lasagna - 4 layers of goodness including a Lemon Oreo crust, cream cheese layer, lemon pudding layer and topped with cream! It's DELICIOUS!

Hey guys! How’s your summer going so far? Has it been flying? Ours is going by so quick and we already start school in a few weeks. Pretty crazy, but the kids are excited. Can’t say I feel the same because I love our time together, but having school starts also means the holidays are fast approaching and that makes me pretty giddy (I’m crazy, I know!) Speaking of things that make me pretty giddy, I’m SO excited to share another delicious dessert recipe with you today that is AMAZING!!! This recipe for Lemon Lasagna will seriously knock your socks off. It’s one of those “layered” treats that has so many levels of delicious-ness. I’ve never been huge on lemon desserts, but things have changed and now I can’t get enough of them! My White Chocolate Lasagna has been a favorite, so I knew a Lemon version would be great. I’m thinking I’ll have to try other versions like cherry and strawberry soon because the layered desserts are a favorite of the family’s and are perfect for get togethers.

As I mentioned, this is a layered dessert, hence the reason why it’s called lasagna. This has a Lemon Oreo base, cream cheese layer, pudding layer and cool whip layer. Top it with a fresh lemon and you’ll be getting rave reviews from everyone. No baking is required for this recipe, and it’s especially perfect during the warmer months since it’s a cool recipe. Our whole family loves this Lemon Lasagna and can’t wait for me to make it again. It’s so creamy and one that everyone will love!

    This looks yummy–I’m making it for company tomorrow. What size package cookies?

  5. 12

    It is too hard to find your recipes. I spend almost a hour tp find it (call me crazy). I don’t have trouble with others webs site

    • 13

      I’m sorry you have trouble. I have a search bar, that makes finding them easier, than going through all my recipes. Especially, if you know the name of the recipe.

  6. 14

    I was on your lemon muffins recipe and the name “Lemon Lasagna” called out to me. What a fantastic idea!

    Hi! Looks yummy!!! Could you please tell me what is the size of Oreo package? Thank you!!!

    • 23

      I don’t have the ounces in front of me, but it’s just the regular size package. Hopefully, that makes sense πŸ™‚ Thanks so much and hope you enjoy!

    I just discovered this delicious looking lemony yummy lasagna! But, I have a question, do I take the cream out of the Golden Oreos or leave the cream in there? Seems like the crust would be extremely sweet of the cream was left in.

    Terry Cortez :

    Gonna make this today with the help of my 3 year old great niece πŸ’—πŸ˜€

  12. 31

    Do you use the unsalted butter for the crust or the cream cheese mixture?

  13. 33

    This looks amazing!

    Amanda Snapp :

    I’m considering adding some lemon zest to the cream cheese layer, do you think this would be a good addition?

  15. 37

    Can I use real whipping cream in place of Cool Whip??

    Saria Griffiths :

    If one cant get lemon pudding pkt what is the option or alternativery. .it’s not freely available in India..(Goa.)..where I live at present..pls do reply..thks

  17. 41

    I think what you called instant pudding, I think we call it something different in Australia is that custard or something else?

  18. 43

    LL,
    Ok, so I bought cook and serve pudding (it was the only lemon kind I saw). Should I make it as the package directs, then layer it on after it cools? Or go back to the store and find the instant kind?

    • 44

      I haven’t tried with the cook & serve, but go ahead and make it according to directions & maybe stick in the fridge to cool, then continue in the steps. Hope that helps!

    Lisa Tucker :

    Hi, are you supposed to melt the half cup of Butter? I didn’t think I would ever get the butter blended with the cream cheese and powdered sugar.

    • 46

      You don’t melt it..I usually get mine out the morning of or night before, so that it’s at room temperature & much easier to mix. Hope that helps πŸ™‚

    I will be making this today for Mother’s Day. I will let you know how it turns out! I am sure it will be fabulous!

    JoAnn Manna :

    I made this for Mother’s Day and used almond milk because that’s what I had. I otherwise followed the directions exactly but it did not set right and was a bit soupy. Tasted good though but next time will use regular milk. Just wanted to share. Thanks

  22. 52

    It was fantastic!! It turned out beautifully and was sooo delicious!

  23. 55

    I made it for Mother’s Day and it was delicious. I used the Golden Oreo’s and added crushed walnuts on the top layer. This will be my new summer dessert. It’s cool and light. People who didn’t like lemons loved this dessert.
    This was my first time on your site. I’m looking forward to checking out more of your recipes.
    Thank you Kristyn:)

      Oh, thank you so much for stopping by! And, I agree…people that don’t like lemon, don’t mind this dessert πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing!!

  24. 57

    I made this last night, it was awesome. Thank you !!! Delicious!

    Hi, I love your lemon lasagna! I was wondering if using a good quality lemon curd would work or should I stay with using instant pudding? Thanks for sharing, I’m look in forward to seeing more goodies from you.

    • 60

      I wish I knew? I haven’t tried with lemon curd. Has anyone else? I’d love to know, so maybe I’ll have to try. The lemon pudding is great too, though πŸ™‚

    Deborah Peters :

    Do you know the nutritional break down of the Lemon Lasagna? Also can you use to replace the 1/2 cup of butter in the cream cheese mixture? Just seems to be fat over kill. Made it for the first time and like it but think it is fat over the top!

    • 62

      I’m sorry I don’t have the nutrient break down. You can use applesauce or vegetable oil in place of butter. I hope that helps! Thanks for giving it a try!

  27. 63

    Way to much cool whip, not enough lemony taste. Crust was good

    Margaret Riccio :

    Love lemon .can’t wait to try this!

    Sandra corbin :

    This is wonderful I also used this to make a key lime lasagna!! Yes royal brand carries key lime instant pudding!!! Thankyou

  30. 68

    I love the use of the lemon cookies as the crust! A think a gingersnap cookie crust would be amazing.
    This recipe was delicious as is but I can taste that the pudding is boxed. I think I might try a lemon curd next time.
    This was a great quick recipe for a last minute get together and the lemon fans loved it!

    Hi Luna,

    Love your creations and so are my kids :).
    I would like to make the Lemon Lasagna for the weekend for a BBQ party but here over at the UK we don’t have lemon instant pudding. What can I buy or make on my own instead .

    Many thanks in advance.
    Michelle

    Try pudding would not thicken. Could it be because I used lactose free milk. Should I have followed pudding directions on the pudding and pie filling?

  33. 74

    Would a can of lemon pie filling (which I have) work instead of the pudding?

  34. 76
    Cheryl Ramirez :

    Can you make a Graham cracker crust instead of cookies?

  35. 78

    I just tried this recipe today and it was pretty tasty. To give it just a bit more tartness I added about 2 oz of frozen lemonade concentrate to the cream cheese mixture. Nummy!

  36. 80

    Do you scrape off the filling of the Oreo cookie in the Lemon Lasagna before you crush them

  37. 82

    How well does this keep after it is made This is Thursday and want to have it over the weekend.

  38. 84

    I made the Lemon Lasagna and everyone loved it. I made it using strawberry pudding also and that was just as good. I am going to make this for our annual Italian Festival where I live, can I make these ahead and freeze them?

    • 85

      I am so glad to hear that!! Thank you so much! I haven’t tried freezing it before, so couldn’t personally let you know, but I think it should be ok. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

    The Lemon Lasagna is now one of my family’s favorites! Giving my Mom the recipe as she asked for and my brother, etc. A tasty delight!
