Cook Time 15minutes
Servings 6half cup servings
2 ¼cupsheavy cream
5tablespoonsfresh lemon juice
4tablespoonsfresh lime juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
cool whip or homemade whipped cream,optional
Using a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream and sugar over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. If the boiling cream is bubbling too much, turn the heat down to medium, but maintain a boil. To prevent it from boiling over, lift the saucepan off the burner for a few seconds, return it to the burner and continue stirring.
Remove from heat and whisk in the lemon and lime juice. Pour the mixture into the serving dishes. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or until set.
When ready to serve, zest one lemon and one lime (1 teaspoon of each). Mix with the sugar. Sprinkle over the posset and garnish with whipped cream (optional).
