Lemon Curd Dessert

Lemon Curd Dessert

Last weekend was Prom at our school, and it may be my last one. EVER. And that makes me so sad, because I had so much fun with the boys over the years, getting their tuxes, picking out flowers, taking pictures and hosting pre-prom parties. So we kind of went out with a bang! The Youngest and one of his bestest friends put together a party that we had at our local supper club. All the parents were invited ahead of time to take pictures (smart right, they didn’t have to all come to my house?). And when they all left, the kids were left with a buffet dinner, fun music and some good times before the dance.

As usual, I had to make the desserts and this was one of the easiest things I have ever done! I would normally make my own lemon curd, but was running short of time that day after working in the morning, and then getting the balloons, flowers, etc. So I bought 2 jars of lemon curd and it made for 12 mini desserts. Lemon curd can be a little over the top tart, so a little goes a long way, but the little bit of fruit on top helps cut the tartness. Unfortunately the fruit was so horrible that day at the store, that I only had 2 choices, I would have much preferred many different types of fruit…

Spoon the lemon curd into mini bowls, top with fruit and a mint leaf. I have also sprinkled graham cracker crumbs on top which adds a nice crunch

    Ok, first up…. look at all that snow in the background! I think that’s a first for me with prom pictures. What a beautiful couple; your son is so handsome! Second, I adore curd – especially lemon! That’s a perfect dessert choice. 🙂
