Lemon Parfait (p. 95)
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup butter
1/2 cup lemon juice (fresh is always best, but not necessary)
1 lemon, zested (approx. 2 tbsp.)
1 recipe Whipped Cream (p.)
1 recipe Vanilla crust (p.)
In a small sauce pan, whisk together sugar and eggs. Then add the butter, lemon juice and lemon zest. Heat over medium until sauce starts to thicken and come together- about 8-10 minutes, then cool completely. Layer starting with your lemon curd, then whipped cream, the repeat if needed. Ending with the whipped cream. Top with the vanilla crust.
Vanilla Crust (p.121)
2 cups vanilla wafer cookies, crushed
2 tbsp. sugar
6-7 tbsp. melted butter
Mix together until a thick paste forms. crumble on top of Lemon Parfait.
Happy Dessert Making!
