Memorial Day weekend and the start of summer is rapidly approaching. Parties will be thrown, snacks will be eaten, and family time will be in full swing. Do you have a big picnic on Memorial Day?
And to kick off that time with a delicious idea, GIANT Food Stores and MARTIN’s Food Markets are starting things off the holiday festivities with their new, exclusive Limoncello-inspired products. How perfect!
When GIANT contacted me to see if I wanted to sample their new products, I couldn’t wait! This is one of my favorite things about blogging.
What is Limoncello?
Limoncello is a flavor authentically derived from Italy, where the Sorrento lemon is cultivated for its sweet and tangy flavor. You can find it in more than 30 products found throughout the store in both the fresh and non-perishable departments.”
I naturally gravitated to the cookies, and that is when recipe inspiration struck: Limoncello Meringue Cookie Lemon Parfait! It is perfect for a party on the deck, or just because!
- Limoncello Meringue Cookies
- Lemon pudding
- 2 cups whole milk(to make pudding)
- Cream cheese, whipped variety
- White powdered sugar
- Whipped dairy topping, thawed
- Make pudding as directed, set aside.
- In a bowl, combine cream cheese, white powdered sugar, and some of the whipped dairy topping. Place in fridge for about 10 minutes.
- Layer bottom of serving dish with pudding.
- Add a layer of the cream cheese mixture on top, and spread evenly.
- Hand crush Limoncello Meringue Cookies, and place a layer on top.
- Add raspberries on top.
- Finish with another scoop of the whipped dairy topping, and add the cookie.
Quick topping tip: scoop out dairy whipped topping with an ice cream scoop onto a cookie sheet. Put in freezer. When you are ready to top off your creation, you can just remove an individual scoop directly off the cookie sheet.
