It’s so easy even I’ll make it – Limoncello Dessert
Honestly, this limoncello dessert recipe is so easy even I’ll make it, and I love that it can be made up to a week ahead of your party.
It’s only a few simple ingredients.
You can make with a purchased graham cracker crust if you desire, however the tart pan makes for a pretty presentation.
Homemade Dessert Crust
If you are making a homemade crust, you will want to begin by mixing your ingredients and pressing into a greased removable bottom tart pan. I used a rectangle pan but a round tart pan will be pretty as well.
Bake the crust at 350 degrees for approx. 10 minutes until set.
Be sure to allow crust to cool before adding filling.
Limoncello Dessert Filling
While the crust is cooling, make your filling by pouring whipping creme into a mixing bowl. Then use a hand-held mixer to beat until it is thick, with a consistency that doesn’t fall from a spoon easily.
Add the zest of 2 lemons, lemon juice, limoncello, and sweetened condensed milk and mix well.
Pour the mixture onto the cooled tart crust and sprinkle toasted coconut over the tops of the filling.
You can eliminate the coconut if you prefer and still have a tasty dessert.
Place in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours up to a week.
Just before serving, remove from the freezer and garnish. I used lemons and blackberries, but any fruit would be pretty on the Limoncello Dessert.
