1 1/4 cups whole milk ricotta cheese

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, divided

1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel, divided

1 (12 oz.) jar Mississippi Belle® Blueberry Topping

1 (11.5 oz.) prepared pound cake, cut into 6 (1 1/4-inch) thick slices

2 tablespoons butter, softened

1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted


STIR ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon lemon peel in small bowl until blended.

COMBINE blueberry topping and remaining 2 teaspoons lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon lemon peel in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH 45 seconds or until warm.
