by Maria Stephen


Step 1

First will be a strawberry shortcake shooter.

Step 2

Layer bottom of 2oz shot glass with shortbread. Homemade or store bought. You can also use ground vanilla wafers.

Step 3

Cut strawberry into small pieces and mix with sugar. Put a layer of strawberry mixture on top of shortbread.

Step 4

Top with whipped cream.

Step 5

Add another layer of shortcake then strawberry and then top with whipped cream. Garnish with a few strawberry pieces.

Step 6

Step 7

Now we'll do a faux lemon meringue. It's "faux" because I don't have a kitchen torch to roast the top.

Step 8

Put a scoop of crushed vanilla wafers on bottom of 2oz shot glass. You can grind it up fine, but personally I like a little crunch so I did it coarsely.

Step 9

Add a layer of lemon curd. I made this one but you can also buy pre made. Then put another layer of vanilla wafers on the top.

Step 10

To make lemon curd: I used 3 egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, 1tbsp butter, 1/4 cup lemon juice. Place ingredients in a stainless steel bowl. Place bowl on top of a pot with simmering water and whisk --->

Step 11

-whisk until curd is thickened. Take off of pot and whisk occasionally to assist to thicken. When cool, refrigerate for 2 hours.

Step 12

Top with whipped cream.

Step 13

Garnish with vanilla wafer crumbs.

Step 14

Step 15

Serve with miniature spoons. I got these from party city.
