Christmassy Lemon and Lime Possets

Prep time: 10 minutes (requires 5 hours cooling time)
Serves 6


If you’re having a last minute panic about your Christmas menu this year, I have the ultimate dessert for you.  This was recommended to me by a friend, because it’s literally the easiest dessert you’ll ever make, but still looks super festive and impressive.  It’s also really refreshing and light, so goes down well after a large Christmas roast!

I’ve added little iced snowmen to my possets (which I actually just bought from Sainsburys!!) but you could sub this with any festive decoration.

Ingredients:

  • 600ml double cream
  • 200g caster sugar
  • zest and juice of 2 lemons and 1 lime
  • Iced snowmen (for decorating).  I bought mine from Sainsburys
  • 2 crushed ginger biscuits

Method:

  1. Heat your cream and sugar in a saucepan over a low heat and stir until all the sugar has melted.
  2. Bring the mixture to boil, stir in the zest and lemon and lime juice and turn off the heat.
  3. Pour into ramekins or glasses, cover, and leave to set in the fridge for at least 5 hours.
  4. Just before serving, crumble your crushed ginger biscuits on top of each posset and and add your snowmen decorations.
