This is my new favorite dessert. As others suggested, I cut the sugar to 1 cup & added the zest of one lemon. I served it in small antique sundae glasses & topped with a splash of cream, 3 raspberries & a sprig of mint. All my friends were impressed & I raved about the fresh lemon flavor. Everyone wanted the recipe. I had no problems with it setting up. However, as I was making it, I thought it would be a great ice cream. Just cool, then put in the ice cream maker. Even if it is a custard consistency, you can still make ice cream with it. I might try this with lime, too, & serve it after a Mexican meal.

This was smooth, rich, tangy, overall AMAZING! And it was so easy to make! I used some fresh Meyer lemons and Trader Joe's heavy cream- when a recipe has only three ingredients quality of ingredients becomes very important. The whole family loved it, from my husband to my four year old. I also made the Lemon Meltaways from this site and they were a perfect companion to the posset. I will definitely put this in my repertoire of recipes.

I tried this recipe after my Mother ( who cannot cook to save her life, sorry Mom) tried it and failed. I don't even like lemony thing, But,this is brilliant and you deserve praise.
