Lemon Ricotta Waffles

The other day I was looking through Instagram at food photos and I noticed an Italian site that had great looking pictures.  There I saw a lemon tart, which looked delicious. That picture was my inspiration for this Lemon Ricotta Waffle. This waffle would make a great brunch dish or a dessert. The tartness of the lemon curd that I mixed with crème fraiche goes great with this waffle.  I hope you enjoy it.
