Riesling ice wine, sweet, 2012
This ice wine has a high acidity with intense fruit flavors and mineral notes. The elegant sweetness in the wine emphasizes the citrus flavors of the dessert.
Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. Zest one fifth of the lemons and squeeze juice from all lemons. The amount of lemon juice should roughly match the amount of sugar.
Cut phyllo dough into 5 cm squares on a lightly floured surface. Place two squares crosswise on top of each other. Melt one third of butter and brush dough with it.
Then, layer muffin pan with prepared sheets of dough. Bake until golden for about 10 - 15 min. in preheated oven at 180°C/350°F. Set aside to cool.
In the meantime, whisk together lemon zest, lemon juice, eggs, egg yolks, sugar, the remaining butter, and a pinch of salt. Heat up over medium heat stirring constantly until the liquid thickens.
Remove from heat and strain through a coarse sieve.
Fill dough cups with curd and let cool 8 - 10 min. Sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar before serving. These cups also taste great when served slightly cooled.
