Delicious Summer Lemon Pots!

I have shared these before on my blog but they are so simple, delicious and elegant that I felt I should share them again.  As the long days of Summer are giving way to shorter days and somewhat milder temperatures, there is still time for a light delicious chilled dessert.  

Lemon Pots


1/2 Cup Lemon Juice 
1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
(about 2 lemons)
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

(makes approx. 4-5 servings)

Combine heavy whipping cream and sugar in a pot and cook over medium heat.  Bring to a boil and cook an additional 3 minutes.  Remove from heat and add lemon juice and lemon zest.  Stir and let sit for a few minutes and then place in little dishes.  I used 5 small Limoges berry dishes.  Place in refrigerator to set and cool.  

Then you can add any garnish you like.  We added a sprig of mint (just bought myself a very pretty and so fragrant mint plant), whipped cream and some tiny pearl candies. 

So very delicious and refreshing!
I recommend them for a nice summer treat that will impress your family and quest!  Don't forget to make a nice fragrant tea to go with your lemon pots!!!
