Say "I Love You Mom" with Mini Lemon Custard Cups

May 12, 2012

These mini lemon custard cups from A Farm Girl Dabbles are the perfect way to say "I Love You Mom."  This recipe is so simple to make that even a novice would feel confident in the kitchen.  Whole milk (yes the full fat variety) is combined with eggs and sugar to form the custard base.  Lemon zest and lemon extract impart a fresh yet concentrated lemon flavor to the custard.  It is very important to strain the custard before baking it to remove any lumps that might have formed during the cooking process.  Serve your mini lemon custard cups with a few slices of strawberry and a dollop of freshly whipped cream.  Mom (and the rest of the family) are guaranteed to love this dessert.  For full recipe instructions, click here.
