II. Dissolve gelatin into boiling water; cool. Whip cream, set aside. Add pudding mixture to gelatin. Mix well. Add sherbet. Beat at low speed until thickened and nearly set. Fold in whipped cream.

This is the dessert my sister-in-law Sharon brought to my birthday party luncheon. It's a recipe her mother used to make for her bridge club, back in the good old days! It was light and refreshing, the way lemon desserts should be, and a perfect finish to a ladies lunch. We added a few sliced strawberries to trim it up!
