Lemon Pots de Creme
Summer's here, time for something sunny and bright, light and lemony to reflect the temperament of the season. Think luxurious, fresh, and silky. Then take the surprisingly few steps to prepare what award-winning baker and cookbook author Nancy Baggett calls “maybe the best dessert ever.” I treasure-hunted through the archives at Nancy’s blog, Kitchen Lane, for these Lemon Pots de Creme, but you can get the easy-to-follow recipe with one click.
These lovely individual desserts with a French heritage are baked in a water bath to preserve their smooth texture and prevent the recipe’s egg yoks from curdling. Garnished with fresh fruit and whipped cream, they make for a stunning presentation at a special dinner or a sweet-tart surprise ending to an everyday meal. And while you’re at Kitchen Lane, have fun browsing the site’s contents for other fail-proof recipes that celebrate every season with mouthwatering treats.
