Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups whipping cream
  • 1 can apricot halves in light syrup drained and quartered
Almond Crunch:
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons large-flake rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter cubed
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
Lemon Curd:
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 pinch salt

Method

Almond Crunch: In bowl, stir together flour, oats and brown sugar. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in almonds. Spread on parchment paper–lined baking sheet; bake in 350?F (180?C) oven until golden and crisp, about 12 minutes. Let cool.

Lemon Curd: In heatproof bowl, whisk together egg yolks, egg, sugar, lemon rind, lemon juice and salt. Place bowl over saucepan of simmering water; cook, whisking often, until thick enough to coat back of spoon and instant-read digital thermometer registers 160?F (71?C), 8 to 10 minutes. Strain through fine sieve into clean bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on surface. Refrigerate until cold and set.

Loosen curd with spoon. Whip cream; fold half into curd. Fold in remaining cream.

Divide apricots among glasses; divide lemon mixture over top. Sprinkle almond crunch over each.
