Lime and Lemon Posset: A Simple and Wonderful Dessert!

Sweet Lemon Lime Cream

This is one of my favorite desserts to make. You can’t beat a creamy, lime and lemon posset! It’s so simple and fancy and only takes a few minutes to make…the only thing you’ll need to wait for is the chilling process. I usually just eat these dreamy cups of posset as is, but other people prefer to spread it on Friand tea cakes. I found this recipe in a Bon Appétit back in 2007. What an awesome find! So grateful to have it stored in my recipe box!
Makes 6 servings
2 1/4 cups whipping cream
3/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon grated lime peel 

Bring cream and 3/4 cup sugar to boil over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil 3 minutes, stirring constantly, adjusting heat as needed to prevent mixture from boiling over. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and lime juice and cool 10 minutes. Stir mixture again and divide among six 1/2-cup ramekins or custard cups. Cover and chill possets until set, at least 4 hours or overnight.
Mix remaining 1 teaspoon sugar, lemon peel, and lime peel in small bowl. Sprinkle atop possets
