Lemon Cream Pots with Lemon Wafers

Lemon Cream Posts with Delicate Lemon Wafers

Another great little dessert from Donna Hay ~ the recipe reminds me of my old stand-by Lemon Pots of Cream recipe which I've shared before, but this one is easier to make.   I used Meyer lemons, but the recipe actually calls for regular lemons, so those will work just fine.

If you like the flavor of lemon but don't care for overly sweet desserts, you may really like this one.  It's creamy and decadent and I found the 3/4 serving size almost too much for me.  Next time I think I may reduce each portion to 4 ounces each... when the (slightly sweetened) softly whipped cream topping is added, it's quite enough.

The Lemon Wafers add a good contrast to the Lemon Cream Pots, and they are easy to make.  But if you don't feel like making them, just add any other little crisp cookie... I won't tell.  :)

If you would like a copy of the recipe you can find it on my recipe blog... HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I'm always most appreciative of any comments you would like to leave.
Have a wonderful week, friends.

  3. Thank you Jane and Yvonne! If you try them, I hope you love them. :)

  4. Girl...they are beautiful. I asked Mike to bring me back glass yogurt pots from Brussels that were supposed to look like your little pots...the ones he brought back were not the right ones...:(

  5. Hi Linda, Oh that's too bad you didn't get the ones you wanted. Maybe next time?

    Ahem, maybe he could tuck some Falk cookware( into
    his bag for me on his next trip home?!heehee.

    Hope you're having a blast while he's home. ((hugs!))

  6. They look heavenly..and soft:) And the cookies look like lovely tuiles~

  7. Monique, thank you my friend.

    Yes, you are absolutely right ~ the cookies truly are nearly identical to tuilles ... same texture and crispness. :)

  8. Yum! Where did you get those adorable pots?

  9. Hi Cindy, They are actually little canning jars manufactured by "Weck", a German company.

    If you 'google' "Weck canning jars", you can learn more about them. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  10. I love a not too sweet dessert Mari; and of course as I always say "lemon is my chocolate."

  11. Hi Val! Oh me too... the choc vs. lemon. Sometimes I'm really in the mood for chocolate, but usually lemon wins out. ;) Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment.

  12. Now this is my type of dessert or treat. Just dip and savour!

  15. Mari
