Lemon Possets

Jump to Recipe

A lemony treat made with just three ingredients – lemon, cream and sugar.

A devilishly easy lemony dessert, which requires no baking and only three ingredients. It really cannot get any easier than this! The recipe is a great make ahead dessert, so you do not have to faff about it on the day of your dinner party.

The silkiness of the posset pairs well with a crunchy-type of biscuit. I have served them with cat’s tongue’s here.
