Wee Cook Wednesday: Chicken Cordon Bleu (and Lemon Tarts)

chicken cordon bleuThe other day Michelle at Scribbit posted the mouth-watering yet super-easy recipe for chicken cordon bleu that won her husband’s heart.

For me, it was lemon tarts. Into little tart shells you spoon a mixture of  lemon curd (1 jar — available at most grocery stores) whipped with about 2 cups of creme fraiche (in the dairy section, or you can make your own). Add a dab of REAL whipped cream and top with a pinch of lemon zest or a twist of lemon peel . . . and chill.

The first time I offered Craig one of these, he promptly ate three, then asked me out on our first date. Yeah, they’re that good!
