For a full guide on how to make the dessert, check out Flouring Kitchen’s recipe guide here. You can also watch her video of the recipe below:

In the simplest terms, however, the recipe asks you to create a lemon curd by combining grated lemon peel and juice with sugar, eggs and butter. This is followed by mixing sugar, lemon peel and limoncello to create your soaking liquid for your biscuits. Using a cake mixer, beat your cream, then mix in some of your lemon curd. Soak your biscuits, and layer your creation with biscuit, cream and lemon curd!
