[From The Pampered Chef® Season’s Best™ Recipe Collection (Fall/Winter 2010).]

This classic Italian after-dinner liqueur is prepared quickly in the microwave with fresh lemons and lemon sorbet.

3 lemons
1 carton (14 oz) of lemon sorbet (1 ¾ cups/425 mL), softened
1 cup (250 mL) citrus-flavored vodka

  1. Avoiding white pith, lightly peel lemons using Serrated Peeler. Thinly slice lemon zest with Santoku Knife. Place lemon zest, sorbet, vodka, and sugar in Large Micro-Cooker®. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 5-7 minutes or until just starting to simmer (do not boil). Carefully remove from microwave; cool 10 minutes.
  2. Strain limoncello into Small Batter Bowl using (5-in/13-cm) Strainer. Serve over ice in four Dots Martini Glasses.
