Parfaits de lemon curd



Me encanta el limón ,me gusta el pie de limón, los cakes de limón, tartas en fin, pero especialmente el Lemon curd que es una crema de limón deliciosa.

 Hoy día me sentía bien cansada (hija enferma y demases) pero quería hacer este postre  porque por algo me gusta cocinar y tengo un blog de cocina!y fue muy bueno, delicioso y fresco.

(6 copas o vasos)

galletas de champagne o de vainillas en trozos

jarabe para mojar las galletas
1/2 taza de agua
1/2 taza de azúcar
2 cucharadas de jugo de limón

Lemon curd
2 cucharadas de ralladura de limón
5 yemas de huevo
3/4 taza de azúcar
3/4 taza de jugo de limón
5  cucharadas de mantequilla

Crema para cubrir
1 taza de crema para batir
2 cucharadas de azúcar en polvo o azúcar glass
ralladura de limón  para adornar


En vasos o copas colocar pedazos de galletas  en el fondo, repartir en 6 vasos.
Para el jarabe o syrup poner en una olla pequeña a fuego medio el agua, el azúcar, cocinar hasta que el azúcar se disuelva.
Dejar enfriar.
Cuando este frio repartir cucharaditas sobre las galletas de champagne ya cortadas en los vasos.

Lemon curd

 En una olla mediana colocar las yemas, ralladura de limón,
azúcar y yemas. Batir bien y cocinar a fuego medio, siempre revolviendo o batiendo porque se irá espesando, agregar finalmente la mantequilla y revolver con cuchara de palo hasta tener un batido cremoso y espeso.
Este proceso puede durar de 6 a 8 minutos.
Dejar entibiar.
Repartir esta crema sobre las galletas de los vasos.

Batir la crema y agregar el azúcar glass o en polvo hasta que tenga una consistencia firme.
con una manga o una cuchara decorar y rallar un poco de cáscara de limón sobre los vasos o copas.
Dejar en el refrigerador hasta servir.
