Lemon Magic

This is a really quick and refreshing dessert almost allays served at warm summer days when you need something light and not too sweet.

For 6 individual portions:
5dl soured cream 
3 lemons
2 tbs icing sugar
1 vanilla
10-15 pieces of lady fingers
3dl double cream

In one bowl mix the soured cream with the icing sugar and 2.5 lemon zest and its juice.
In the other bowl whip the double cream until stiff peaks then mix the contents of the two bowls.
Layer the cream and the lady fingers and put it into the fridge for at least 24 hours. 
Serve chilled with the sliced, half lemon for decoration.

Hints and tips
-if you don't have time for the 24 hours chilling, dip the lady fingers into some milk just before layering. It really should be a quick dip for 4-5 second to start the softening process. If you leave the lady finger in the milk for too long, it will fell apart and it will release milk later on when your desserts already assembled....and you don't want that.
If you use the "milking" method, 3-4 hours resting in the refrigerator will be sufficient.
-As usual please taste the cream, as somebody like sour desserts more than others, if this is the case add another lemon to the cream...
