Girl Scout Cookie Recipe –  Savannah Sunset Curd Parfait

Got Tangy? Savannah Sunset Parfait made with Curd and Savannah Smiles Girl Scout Cookies

This is a delicious tangy recipe that captures of the common tangy flavors of Meyer Lemons, Ruby Red Tangerines and Savannah Smiles Girl Scout Cookies. This recipe is medium level of difficulty, but really easy to execute once you have the technique mastered.

I have always loved Savannah Smiles Cookies, which are zesty lemon cookies, dusted with powdered sugar. This recipe enhances the cookie’s flavors and tames the tangy flavor of the citrus curd.

The fruits I have highlighted in this recipe is the Ruby Tango tangerine, which is a tangerine with red flesh. It is similar in sweetness to the blood orange, but retains the medium tartness of a tangerine. The other fruit is the classic Meyer lemon, the quintessential lemon for cooking due to it’s aromatic zest and sweet juice.

Both ingredients are perfect to create a tangy, yet balanced curd for the recipe.  Thanks to my friends at Melissa’s Produce for introducing me to the Ruby Tango Tangerine.
