These elegant lemon cream pots are sophisticated and very easy to make. A perfect way to end a dinner party, just be sure to leave enough time for the cream to set and the cherries to soak up the Amaretto.
Combine the cream, sugar and lemon zest in a saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer for 4 minutes, but do not allow to boil. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice. Pour into 8 ramekin dishes and chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
Meanwhile, soak the cherries in amaretto liqueur to cover for at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight.
To serve, spoon the cherries on top of the lemon cream, sprinkle some almonds over and add a sprig of fresh mint.
