Preparation

  1. Lemon curd:

Cook over medium-low heat until thick enough for mixture to leave path on back of spoon with finger is drawn across, stirring constantly, 6 to 7 minutes (do not boil). Strain into medium bowl.

Cool slightly. Can serve immediately or refrigerate covered with plastic wrap until ready to serve.

Using electric mixer, beat cream, mascarpone, and pinch of salt in large bowl just until peaks form. Arrange six 8-ounce parfait glasses or compote cups on work surface.
