Lemon Cups

Recipe by Chef Dudo

Lemon-desserts, mmmmm. One of my favourite.

Yummy! Was even better when backed in a lemon that had been hallowed out. Added an extra zing of lemon and made for a great presentation. Just cut a little off the bottom of several (8-12) large lemons so they will sit up then cut the top 1/3 off each lemon. Hallow out the pulp of the lemon using a melon baller or other creative tool. Don't forget to wrap the lemon in foil before placing it in the water bath. Save the top of the lemon for a fun garnish when serving this yummy treat.
