A simple, delicious, quick dessert I just love is the Lemon Cream Parfait.
You’ll need 2 lemons (washed, zests, juices-reserve 1 teaspoon of zest for garnish), 1 cup Heavy Cream, 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, 3/4 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract. 10 whole shortbread or sugar cookies (crumbled). I usually always have a sugar cookie bakers dozen (hidden) but you can easily use store bought if you do not particularly love to bake cookies or have the time to. Place cookies in a zip-lock bag and using a rolling pin run it across the cookies to crumble (or beat them to get out some frustrations-just do not rip the bag!). Place crumbled cookies in a small bowl.
In a mixing bowl add heavy cream, sugar, vanilla extract, lemon zest, juice and using a hand held mixer (or a stand mixer) cream and whip together until fluffy. Using parfait or dessert cups (or any vessels you like) add a 2″ layer of cookie crumbles to the bottom, add a nice portion of lemon cream on top and repeat one more layer of each. Garnish with reserve lemon zest on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
This is so refreshing! I hope you’ll enjoy!
In closing I wish you Good Health. Cheryl “Cheffie Cooks” All Things Citrus.
