Ice cream is such a ‘pick-me-up’ treat and always seems to put a smile on just about anyone’s face. I love the fact that it can be served in a variety of ways, including cone or sans cone, dipped in sprinkles, layered with added fruit and more.
Now, while I’m completing gushing about ice cream, don’t let the looks of these pictures or the title of this blog post deceive you. There is actually no ice cream in this recipe at all. This recipe, Key Lime Curd Cones, is a delightful new combination of key lime curd, flaky sugar cone and a dollop of a meringue on top.
It almost seems sacrilegious that this recipe doesn’t contain ice cream; however, I thought these were just too cute to pass up. After making this recipe, I have a new-found appreciation for key lime curd as well as meringue. While the meringue can be a bit tedious, the finished product is adorable and packs a punch of flavor from the key limes (watch out for its tangy-ness!).
What’s your favorite lime-flavored dessert?
