Hope's Kitchen: Lemon Posset


Lemon Posset

As summer slips away I still crave the taste of a citrusy dessert...and this one is the best! It’s so easy and so delicious. At a dinner party that I hosted I looked down my table to see one of the guests licking out the dish...I mouthed, “Would you like more?” His response was to close his eyes and nod yes. Perfection.

So here goes.


  • 2/3C white granulated sugar

  • 2 ¼ C heavy cream

  • 1/4C sieved fresh lemon juice


  1. Bring the sugar and cream to a boil in a heavy bottomed pan stirring constantly.

  2. Set timer for 3 minutes, reduce to simmer and continue to stir.

  3. Take off heat, stir in the lemon juice, pour into 6 – 8 ramekins or any dessert dish and chill until set, about 4 hours.

It is perfect served plain however you can top it off with some shaved dark chocolate or fresh fruit. For the photo I didn’t have any fresh fruit so I topped it off with frozen blueberries...yummy.
