French Dessert and Cafe

Hello everyone, 
The weather has changed in the past few days. We're finally having rain showers.
With the weather cooler I lite the fireplace and set a dessert table in the living room. I bought the little pots at TM last year, while they were on clearance.
I'm in my frenchy mood again and wanted to use the pots to make a french dessert and use my demitasse cups for a French tablescape.
I'm truly blessed with a wonderful garden area and this week a few of my daffodils and pansies are blooming I love my tulip vase for a special look. 
The silver sugar and creamer are the perfect size for my dessert table.
Lemon pot de crème is a heavenly dessert and it’s also convenient—you can (and should) make it the day before you plan to serve it, so when it’s time for dessert, all you have to do is pull the chilled custards out of the refrigerator and serve...Smooth, airy, with a gentle pucker of lemon, these individual golden lemon creams make a delightfully light dessert..

Lemon Pots De Creme are delicious with ALMOND CRESCENTS 
a rich, delicate and buttery flavored cookie*** 
The first time I made this delicious cookie was in 1960 for a Cookie Swap.
They've been my all time favorite ever since.

  1. Can I come over and enjoy your lovely table? It looks so inviting. I can't wait to make your lemon pots de crème and crescents! I bought the same pots in red. Thank you for sharing your wonderful table!
    Blessings My Friend,

  2. Looks really good and sounds delicious. I envy you your blooming daffodils!

  3. Flowers blooming already....many of us are envious and of your lovely table, too.

  4. What a charming dessert table. Love the sound of it all! Thanks for sharing at TTF this week!!

  5. Daffodils, what an unexpected surprise! How lovely with your lemon dessert and please pass the almond crescents!

  6. Love this beautiful table...looks great!

  7. Your table setting looks lovely and so does the little pots of dessert and the almond crescents. One question about the almonds crescents recipe, is that plain or self raising flour? and what do you mean by "shortening (half butter)"? They sound easy to make.
    Have a wonderful week, I am next to you on Mosaic Monday.

    1. Hi Jill,
      This Almond Crescent recipe is from my 1960 Betty Crocker cookbook...All purpose flour is the recommended flour to use in this recipe. Shortening is Crisco 1/2 cup and 1/2 butter. Thank you for asking about the recipe. They are very easy♥

  8. It all looks so pretty. The Lemon Pots de Creme sound lovely.

  9. I am glad you were in a frenchy mood. What a lovely table. Your daffodils are the first I have seen this year. I have some peeking up with buds.

    Can't wait to try your dessert. Your table is especially pretty.

    I LOVE your new header. Beautiful!

  10. Thanks, Bonnie,,,I'm so excited to see if all 100 daffodil bulbs bloom. I think the header is a keeper too.

  11. Your table setting is lovely, beautiful flowers and a delicious dessert. Thanks for sharing, have a happy week!

  12. The Almond Crescents (Vanillekipferl) are a traditional Western European Christmas cookie. They originate from Austria but they are also very popular in Germany. They are probably THE most delicious cookie there is, even because of the almonds. Try them after one or two days of storing in a tin box. To die for! I promise!

  13. Just beautiful and the lemon cream looks so good! I am featuring this today at TTG FB page! https://www.facebook.com/thethriftygroove

  14. So romantic! Great to have you at Seasonal Sundays.
