Tiers of tart, jewel-toned tangerines, grapefruits, oranges, and lemons alternate with layers of silken caramel mousse in this simple, stunning dessert. Elegant lace cookies, easily made from ground hazelnuts, enhance the contrast of textures -- and the temptation.

    Used Almonds instead of hazelnuts, and it was perfect for after a heavy Christmas dinner. I usually make a plum pudding with custard or some form of Yule Log, but this was light and perfect and still super special. It’s presence has been demanded for this year’s holiday dinner.
