Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe is from my grandmother which I remember having during the summer from my childhood visits

to her house in Fresno, California. A

big favorite of everyone!

Ingredients You'll Need

3 egg yolks beaten slightly, saving whites
1/4 C. lemon juice (fresh)
1/2 lemon, zested...grated or chopped fine
1/8 tsp. salt
9 T. sugar


Mix above ingredients into the top of a double broiler and cook over boiling water...stirring or beating constantly until the mixture thickens and coats the spoon. Remove from the heat and cool.

Beat the 3 egg whites until soft peaks are made. Fold the lemon curd into the whites.


1 C.whipping cream

into soft peaks, then add to the lemon mixture. Place into a 10X10

shallow dish. Sprinkle the top with a ground mixture of crystallized sugar and roasted almonds or line the bottom and sprinkle the top with ground graham crackers. (The first way was my mother's translation and the second way my grandmother's. They are both good!)

Freeze for several hours.
