  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 ounces white chocolate finely chopped
  • 8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature (very important!)
  • 1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons sugar DIVIDED
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 32 small 3" long soft ladyfingers
  • 10 ounces lemon curd


  • Heat milk until hot but not boiling. Whisk in white chocolate until melted. Set aside to cool.
  • In a large bowl, beat 1/4 cup sugar into cream cheese. Whisk the white chocolate mixture into the cream cheese mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the heavy cream and vanilla until soft (not stiff) peaks form. Gently fold this whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  • For lemon syrup, in a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice and 3 tablespoons sugar until dissolved.
  • In each of four wide-mouthed, pint-sized mason jars, fit two ladyfingers into the bottom of the jar, brush with lemon syrup, and then repeat with two more ladyfingers and additional syrup. Spread 1 tablespoon lemon curd over top of ladyfingers. Pour 1/3 cup white chocolate cream on top of lemon curd. Repeat another layer of ingredients, using 4 more ladyfingers, lemon curd, and white chocolate cream to nearly reach top of jar.
  • If desired, garnish with lemon zest, white chocolate curls, and any leftover lemon curd drizzled on top. Place lids on jars and chill in refrigerator for at least 4 hours (preferably 8+ hours) before serving.


  • If the cream cheese is not completely at room temperature, the melted white chocolate will re-solidify into little chunks once you mix the two together.
  • Mascarpone cheese may be substituted for the cream cheese.
  • If you can't find ladyfingers, thin slices of poundcake may be used instead.
