Ingredients:

  • 1 cup heavy chilled cream
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice (to taste)
  • 1 whole zest of lemon

 

Directions:

Heat 1/2 cup of heavy cream in a heavy, 1-quart saucepan until hot.

Combine egg yolks, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a metal bowl and whisk well, then slowly add hot cream in a steady stream while continuing to whisk.

Transfer mixture into the same, clean heavy saucepan and cook over over moderately low heat, constantly stirring until the thermometer reads 160*F.

Pour custard into a fine-mesh sieve and use a spatula to push it through into a bowl then stir in lemon juice and lemon zest.

Beat the 1/2 cup of heavy cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until it holds stiff peaks. Fold in whipped cream with custard and combine well.
