Mrs Beeton's Lemon Cream

Mrs Beeton has long been a favorite of mine. I have two of her books, one of them printed in 1901. And the other one was bought for my great grandmother by my Nana when she was a girl ( sometime in the 1920s). They are such a window into the world of the Victorians. I love just looking through them, imagining what it would have been like to live in such different times.
With all this hot weather I have been feeling like something lemony so today I decided to try Mrs Beeton's recipe for Lemon Cream. My little sister Briar helped me and we made little individual ones instead. They are lovely, cool and creamy with a hint of lemon.
