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 it with a purchased graham cracker crust if you’d like, but the tart pan makes for a pretty presentation.

Homemade Dessert Crust

If you make a homemade crust, you will want to begin by mixing your ingredients and pressing them into a greased removable bottom tart pan. I used a rectangular pan, but a round tart pan will also be pretty.

Bake the crust at 350 degrees for approx. 10 minutes until set.

Be sure to allow the crust to cool before adding the 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.

Whipping creme for dessert filling

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.

Can I substitute lemon juice for limoncello? I want to make this for a group of people who do not consume alcohol 😬

Mariah, The recipe includes lemon juice and limoncello, so I suggest using a small amount of lemon zest with more lemon juice to substitute.
