Practical Gourmet: Small Plates for Sharing
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tblsp lemon juice
- Large egg, beaten
- Egg yolk
- 2 tsp grated orange zest
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1 tblsp orange liqueur
- 18 chocolate wafers
- Cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy
Combine sugar, butter, juices, egg and yolk in a saucepan. Cook and stir on medium until thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. Do not boil. Let stand until cool. Place plastic wrap directly on surface to prevent skin from forming. Chill for about 2 hours until cold.
Beat cream and liqueur until soft peaks form. Fold into orange mixture.
Place 8 wafers on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Spoon half of orange mixture over wafers. Top with wafers. Spoon remaining orange mixture over second layer of wafers. Break remaining two wafers into quarters and place 1 piece over each sandwich. Freeze for one hour.
Just before serving, dust with cocoa powder.
