Lemon Berry Parfaits On Wednesday I shared Ryan's birthday dinner, or the main dish anyhow, with you and today we're moving on to dessert. You might recall that, when given the choice, Ryan will always pick a fruity dessert. It's the reason previous birthday desserts have included a lemon tart , cream cheese fruit tarts , and mixed berries with mascarpone limoncello cream .
This year's birthday dessert was fairly similar to last year's, but the boy gets what the boy wants...on his birthday anyhow! This dessert comes together quickly...store-bought lemon curd is mixed with homemade whipped cream and then tossed with berries. It's creamy and tart and perfect for the fruit dessert lover! You could also add some chunks of pound cake or angel food cake and make it more like a trifle, if you're looking for something a little more substantial. Even though I'd almost always choose a real (read: chocolaty, peanut buttery, etc.) dessert over something fruity, I have to admit this was pretty darn good!
