Yield: Makes 8 half-cup servings.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • juice and grated rind of 2 large lemons
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla or almond extract
  • berries, mint sprigs, or freshly sliced lemon or lime, for garnish

Instructions:

Whip the cream with the sugar until thick. Fold in the lemon juice and rind, and the extract. Pour into individual ramekins, non-stick muffin tins, or a decorative mold. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. A large mold will take 3 hours for the parfait to harden, but individual servings take only about an hour. When ready to serve, add fruit or mint as a garnish.

    I brought this to a potluck luncheon — my aunts loved it. A cool dessert for a hot day.
