Meyer Lemon and Blackberry Parfait Recipe Recipe

I spent last week in Southern California. It's become a routine that whenever I find time, I explore farmers' market in the places we visit. I had time to wander around and find new, intriguing ingredients and on this trip, I bought incredibly fragrant pure blackberry extract. 

Once I came home, I had one idea in mind: experiment with the new blackberry extract. The result is this luscious creamy, lemony parfait dessert flavored with the oh-so-wonderfully fragrant fruit essence. For a nice contrast of texture, I used mini meringue cookies as the base and topped the miniature dessert cups with fresh blackberries.

I've made a lot of jars of Meyer lemon curd over the last few days and I used one of them to create this dessert. I folded in a bit of sweetened whipped cream so the mousse was light and airy and used it to fill the shaped and baked wonton cups. A topping of my citron confit and a dash of powdered sugar made the cutest garnish that also acted as a reminder of the flavors of this elegant dessert.

No need to look for cute cups to serve the mousse in; the Meyer lemon rind does the job splendidly.
