Emergency Guest Goodies Recipe:
This delicious instant recipe for last-minute guests is a sure winner everyone will love! Keep these items stocked in your pantry during the holidays: gingersnap or gingerbread cookies or gingerbread cake and jars of lemon curd (found with the jams and jellies in your supermarket isle).
One package prepared gingersnap or gingerbread cookies OR prepared or homemade gingerbread cake.
One jar lemon curd, any brand, although I prefer Dickinson’s because of its clarity and rich lemony flavor.
Scoop lemon curd into a small microwavable serving container and warm through until curd is smooth, approximately 35 seconds. Stir. Curd is ready to use when it’s spreadable. Spread warm lemon curd over gingerbread cake as icing. Slice cake and serve.
Serve the warm lemon curd as a dip or spread beside a plate of ginger cookies. Use tiny dessert knives to spread the lemon curd. This method is my personal favorite. Enjoy!
