May 2012 Wanted to share the Love.
My wife Rosalie and I were staying at a nice four star hotel and restaurant that is a castle on the Rhine River above the town of Oberwesel in Germany's Rheingau premier wine district in Germany. Guess what we were drinking at dinner in the Castle Restaurant? See photo - Bogle !

FROZEN LEMON TORTE
The perfect dessert to chill with...
We realize we have largely ignored the dessert demographic here in our recipe column. Shame on us!! Here's a fantastic no-bake dessert for these dog days of summer. Easy, breezy, delicious!
Graham cracker crust
1 1/2 cups graham crackers crumbs
1/2 cup sugar
6 tbsp melted butter
4 eggs, separated
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 T. grated lemon peel
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- Combine cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup sugar and butter until moist, then press into the bottom of a springform pan. (Or buy a graham cracker crust at the store--we won't tell!)
- Beat the egg whites until stiff. Gradually beat in 3/4 cup sugar until stiff and glossy.
- In a separate bowl, blend the yolks, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, lemon peel and juice.
- Whip the cream.
- Carefully fold the egg whites, yolk mixture and cream together. Pour into the prepared crust.
- Freeze for at least 8 hours.
OUR WINE SUGGESTIONS:
OK, so this one doesn't automatically lend itself to a wine pairing...it's pretty tart. But our 2011 Moscato would nicely balance the crispness of the dessert...and make for a lovely summer evening! Let us know what you think...
Thanks to neighbor Amy Kauffman for the recipe!!
