    Well, I just pulled these cakes out of the oven about 30 minutes ago. Verdict: Absolutely delicious!!! The cake itself is wonderfully moist, and the outer crust is like a shell...crunchy and sweet.
    Even though it did not need it, we put a dollup of Extra Creamy Cool Whip on each slice and it was sinful!! (Although heavy whipping cream would certainly have been better since it's a real dairy food)
    This is a HIT in our home. I highly recommend baking this recipe!
    Thanks for sharing...
    =)

    Don't try a mediocre cookie for the crunch topping, it is not a good substitute. Stick with the vanilla wafers. They hold up well in the baking, the lemon cookies became mushy. Live and learn. (The cake itself it good, not crunchy. I think I'll get some lemon curd and serve a dollop on each slice with some whipped cream. There, my crisis is fixed.

    Okay, I had some storebought lemon cookies that were just so-so in flavor, so I pulverized them in the food processor and used some lemon zest and coated the loafpans with that. We have to see how they look out of the oven. I may have just ruined the whole thing, or I could be lucky and have a new tasty treat.
