Ingredients

Cheese

Look for the Proudly Wisconsin Badge when shopping for cheese. Any brand of Wisconsin Quark can be used in this recipe.

Instructions

  1. Combine the blueberries, sugar, water and cornstarch in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low; simmer, uncovered, for 4-6 minutes or until the mixture is reduced by half and thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Cool completely.
  2. Combine quark and honey in a small bowl. Spoon or pipe a heaping teaspoon quark mixture in each 3-ounce glass.
  3. Layer each with 1 teaspoon lemon curd and 1 teaspoon blueberry mixture. Repeat layers, starting with the quark mixture, filling glasses until almost full. Top with quark mixture. Garnish with lemon zest. Refrigerate until serving.
