Light & Lovely Lemon Mousse (No Cook)
June 13, 2016
"Found @ allrecipesdotcom & credited to Dickinson's (Dickinson's Fruit Products) - I saw recently that 1 of my on-line cooking friends had a recipe for homemade lemon curd. I've always liked it, but seldom seen it here in Iceland except in high priced import stores. So I tagged her recipe to make for a tag game & then wondered what I'd do w/it when the time came. I recipe searched & found 2 I esp liked that used lemon curd. This is my favorite & will be great for entertaining family & friends, mainly because I favor light desserts to follow otherwise heavy dinner meals. As I often do, I modified the recipe slightly (mainly in response to reviews) & this is the result. I'll be using the homemade lemon curd to make this recipe in the next 2 wks. ENJOY!"
