Lemon Gingersnap Posset
In Shakespeare's 'Hamlet,' posset was the sweet spiced drink used to poison someone. Since then it has evolved into a dessert that seems too good to be true. Not only does it feature a rich, thick, luxurious texture and intense, clean citrus taste, but it's also free of eggs, starch, and gelatin. The lemon flavor is even more intense than that in lemon curd, despite using less juice. Garnish with whipped cream and pomegranate, or any seasonal fruit.
The first time I ever had this it was done with lime and graham cracker crumbs, and was equally stellar, so feel free to try both lemon and lime and use any crunchy cookie crumbs you like.
