I love these small lemony desserts. They are perfectly light with a hint of richness to provide a satisfactory end to a summer meal.

These small desserts are also ideal to serve at large parties or where it is easy for a guest to enjoy a few spoonfuls from an espresso cup or a small glass whilst standing up! You can easily fill small ‘shot’ glasses using a piping bag.

There is plenty of sugar in both the liqueur and the curd so I have not added any to the cheese mixture.

A while ago I posted a recipe for Limoncello.

The home made version is so much nicer than the commercial version. If you want to ring the changes replace it with an orange flavoured liqueur and top it with orange curd.

Here are the recipes

Lemon or orange curd


Cheese cake desserts.
