Fun Food: {Little Lemon Cups}

Little bites of BIG flavor!
Where would we be without our beloved lemon?
What is it about this God given creation that we love so much?!
 Is it the smell? The taste? The aesthetic appeal? The versatility?
 Hands down...... all the above!
We present to you our Little Lemon Cups.....

What You Will Need:
1-2 packages Mini pastry cups {found ours at the Grocery Outlet}
1 8oz. carton Mascarpone {Trader Joe's}
1 10oz. bottle Lemon Curd
optional: 1/2 t. vanilla and lemon extract


How To:
Allow Mascarpone to sit out of fridge 5-10 minuets to soften.
Mix lemon curd, extracts and mascarpone cheese together in a bowl until well blended.

{this is what the pastry cup looks like before filling}

Using either a spoon or pastry bag fill the pastry cups as desired.

Garnish with grated lemon rind if desired.

Serve or chill in fridge
These can also be used with savory fillings inside too.

These are quick, simple and would make great dessert options on your dessert tables!
 We hope you are inspired to give these a try! Remember, keep it Homespun!

                                             Bow down Your ear to me,
                                             Deliver me speedily;
                                             Be my rock of refuge,
                                           A fortress of defense to save me.
                                           Psalm 31:2
Homespun With Love
