Recipe

The lemon-lime curd can be prepared up to a day ahead, making for quick-and-easy assembly at serving time. It’s easy and elegant, rich yet light–the perfect ending to a special meal.

What to drink: Pair with a sweet Vouvray made from chenin blanc grapes in France’s Loire Valley. A sweet sparkling wine would also pair well.

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ pound (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces, at room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup very cold heavy cream
  • 1 pint (2 cups) fresh raspberries, gently rinsed and laid out to dry on paper toweling

Directions

1. To make the lemon-lime curd, combine the eggs, butter, sugar, lemon and lime zests, and lemon and lime juices in a heavy nonreactive saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture is thick enough to hold the mark of the whisk after you drag it through the curd, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour the curd through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl and let cool to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing it directly against the curd, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

2. Just before serving, whip the cream to soft peaks. Layer the curd, whipped cream, and raspberries in that order in four parfait glasses, repeating the layers two more times to make three layers of each.
