Lemon Ginger Dessert

This ginger flavoured dessert is heaven – easy to make, and the flavours – wow! just like Fred and Ginger! Double wow.

Music Selection: Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers – Heaven

Ingredients:

8 oz cream cheese at room temperature

2 tsp grated lemon zest

10 oz lemon curd

2 cups whipping cream

36 – 40 thin gingersnap cookies

2 Tbsp crystallized ginger, diced finely

Directions:

In large bowl, beat the cream cheese with beaters. Add lemon zest. Beat in lemon curd until smooth.

Gradually, add in the whipping cream and beat until soft peaks.

In an 8 x 8 baking dish, cover the bottom with a layer of gingersnap cookies. I like to break a few to fill in the spaces. Spread about 2/3 cup of the whipped cream on top. Then add another layer of cookies, then whipping cream, until you have a good 4 layers. The top layer should be the whipping cream.

Sprinkle with the crystallized ginger. Place in fridge to cool for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Cut into 12 pieces and serve! Great for afternoon tea or coffee breaks.
