Something to celebrate from Victoria Abbott (aka Mary Jane and Victoria Maffini)
We were looking something special to make for Easter, something pretty and not too challenging. Something with NO FLOUR! Something with eggs, of course, and bright spring color: yellow, for sure.
We've been thinking about tiramisu a lot lately and thought about a lemon variation. We put it together using layers of our favorite flavors. You could certainly experiment and make it your own.
LEMON MERINGUE TIRAMISU
FOR THE MERINGUE
FOR THE LEMON CURD (makes about 1 2/3 cups)
MASCARPONE CREAM FILLING
It’s quite rich, so you may decide to go with small glasses or dishes. We didn’t. Ahem. Layer on about half the meringue. Layer on half the cream mixture. Add a second disc. Repeat with lemon curd and cream. This didn't lend itself to being photographed for some reason.
Cover and refrigerate at least overnight. We added a strawberry to the top of ours. You'll have your own ideas. Serve with verve!
Victoria Abbott is the mysterious collaboration between the artist and photographer Victoria Maffini and her mother, the mystery writer, Mary Jane Maffini. Normally they're quite sensible but there's a lot of treats around Easter and well, you know ...
That's us! Strangely enough, our three book collector mysteries, The Christie Curse, The Sayers Swindle and The Wolfe Widow all contain lots of desserts and celebrations and a certain amount of silly head gear.
By the way, we're still celebrating this cover for The Marsh Madness. We think it looks good enough to eat.
