    Really delicious and a lovely cooling dessert on a hot, summer's day. This was not too sweet, just tart enough. LIghtly-creamy. Elegant enough for company. A keeper, in short.

    I love the taste of the limoncello. I had maybe 7 ounces of heavy cream so I had to complete with half and half cream. Maybe the result was not the same. But for me, it was ok. It was still thick but maybe a little bit less due to the half and half cream. Thanks Sarah. Made for ZWT4

    Light and airy with a great sweet tart flavor. I used crushed almond biscotti to replace the amaretti I couldn't find locally and the contrasting crunch gave this dessert such a wonderful play on the taste buds. Half the recipe gave me four 2 1/2 oz dessert cups. Made for ZWT4.
