Lemony Dessert

I made this lemon dessert last night, I really wanted lemon tart but the pastry shells takes so long to make & I couldn't be bothered.
So I concocted this Lemony dessert, it is a bit like Tiramisu & it was so super easy. Plus I thought of a cheats way too that is even simpler.
Lemony Dessert
Recipe: makes 6 small
9 small sponge finger biscuits (Savoiardi) The kind you use for Tiramisu. Cut into pieces.
1 cup of water
1/2 cup of lemon juice
1/2 cup of sugar
3 tablespoons of cornflour
grated rind of 1 lemon
2 egg yolks
60gms butter
whipped cream to finish
Put the water, lemon juice, rind, sugar & cornflour in a small saucepan & whisk until smooth.
Heat the saucepan of ingredients over a medium-high, whisking until it boils, then boil until it thickens about 5minutes. (it will go from cloudy to sightly clear).
Remove from the stove, whisk in the butter & eggs .
Set a side to cool slightly. (I didn't wait that long I was hungry)
Arrange the cut up biscuits in small bowls, pour the lemon mixture over them, add some whipped cream.
Any left over lemon mixture can be stored in the fridge for a week.

Here's the cheats way.
9 small sponge finger biscuits (Savoiardi) Cut into pieces.
1 jar of lemon butter or curd.
whipped cream.
Assemble as above.

Happy New Year & all that good stuff

Well it's day 3 of the New Year & I'm only just writing my resolutions (you can't rush these things!). I'm not real good with resolutions or sticking to a plan, I kinda just go with the flow & get distracted by bright shiny things. Last year I started to change that & managed to stay focused (well focused for me, baby steps people baby steps).
1st thing will be to blog everyday.
So here is day ONE.
Like i said baby steps :)
