Candy Corn Parfait

I found this on Food Network's website while searching for another recipe and thought it was a really cute take on the image of candy corn. Although candy corn is the Halloween item that people love to hate, the yellow, orange and white pattern is very recognizable. This recipe incorporates sweet and citrus for a nice fresh take.

Recipe from Food Network.

-1 large orange
-1 to 2 tablespoons orange liqueur
-3 tablespoons lemon curd
-1/4 cup whipped cream

Peel and segment the orange with a paring knife, removing the membranes and white pith. Chop the segments and toss with the orange liqueur in a bowl; set aside for about 10 minutes.

Spoon the lemon curd into a wine glass in an even layer. Top with a thin layer of whipped cream, then pile on the oranges and dollop with the remaining whipped cream.

This was incredibly easy to put together, the assembly time was only a few minutes after the orange segments had soaked. The lemon curd had a nice blend of sweetness and citrus, playing off of the citrus flavors in the oranges and the sweetness in the whipped cream -- the lemon curd really helped to balance everything. I thought these turned out really cute and it's easy to adjust the recipe quantity as needed.
