  • Summary

    A light, fresh dessert perfect for spring and summer! Gluten free, with lactose free substitutions noted. If you aren't serving all 8 at once, just keep the extra components separate and store in the fridge or the nests will get a bit soft. Prepare the nests and lemon curd in advance for an easy dessert when you're ready to eat, or use a good store-bought lemon curd to make it even easier :)
