Gluten and Sugar-Free Lemon Delight (THM-S)

My husband really enjoys lemon-flavored desserts, so I decided to convert a lemon delight recipe to make a "healthier" option. He was happy with the finished product and recently asked me if I'd make it again sometime.

This makes a large 9x13 pan, but you can easily make half of this amount and use a 8x8 sized pan. This delight looks best when it's eaten without a lot left over. The leftovers have the tendency to run off the crust and doesn't look the best the next day, although it will still taste delicious. I hope you enjoy it!
