I‘ve been looking for a great dessert for Easter and I do believe I’ve found it! I spotted this recipe on the Anna Magazine website. It checks all the boxes for a special event dessert – easy, tasty and pretty. And it can be made (mostly) ahead.

I took the recipe for a test spin this weekend and it did not disappoint. Even my “citrus dessert hating” daughter ate it all up. Other than finding the portion size a tad large, everyone agreed it was a keeper and it will be on my Easter 2011 menu.

Cook’s Notes: You can adjust the size of the cut circles or do 2 or 3 layers to extend the number of servings you can get from this recipe. See my notes below for some ideas. Mine shown used a 3-inch cutter with just two layers. If doing only two layers, don’t skimp on the icing in between as there is only one chance to use it and it’s a great sweet complement to the tart glaze.
