Frozen Lemon Parfait

  1. Line a 28 x 20-cm (11 x 8-inch) glass dish (with straight sides) with parchment paper, letting it hang over each side.
  2. In a saucepan off the heat, combine 60 ml (¼ cup) of sugar and cornstarch. Add eggs and stir with a whisk until smooth. Stir in lemon juice and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and add butter. Stir until melted. Strain through a sieve over a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar (125 ml / ½ cup) and beat until sugar has dissolved and meringue forms stiff peaks.
  4. Spoon meringue onto lemon cream and gently fold in with a spatula or whisk. Pour into prepared dish and freeze for 6 hours or until firm.

Lemon Cookies

  1. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl, cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Add egg yolk and lemon zest and combine thoroughly. At low speed or with a wooden spoon, add dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Shape dough into a disc and cover in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  3. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. On a floured work surface, roll out dough into a 3-mm- (1/8-inch-) thick square. Cut pastry to form straight edges. Cut into twelve 10-cm (4-inch) square cookies.
  5. With a thin spatula, place cookies on baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until they begin to brown. Let cool completely before handling.
  6. Unmould parfait and cut into six squares. Place parfait slices between two cookies and cover individually in plastic wrap. Store in an airtight container in the freezer.
