Ingredients

cup lemon juice
fresh
3 tablespoons lemon juice
fresh
1 teaspoon lemon zest
finely grated
¼ ounce gelatin, unflavored
unflavored
1 cup heavy whipping cream
6 large eggs
separated, room temp.
¼ teaspoon salt
3 cups powdered sugar
sifted
¼ pound butter
unsalted, room temp.

Directions

In a small heatproof bowl, stir together the ⅓ cup lemon juice and the lemon zest.

Sprinkle on the gelatin and set aside to soften for 10 minutes.

Set the bowl in a saucepan of hot water over low heat and stir to dissolve the gelatin.

Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, whip cream until just stiff.

Cover and refrigerate until needed.

In a deep bowl, combine egg whites with the salt.

Beat until soft peaks form.

Gradually add 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.

In another bowl, beat the butter until soft and fluffy.

Add 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar and beat until smooth.

One at a time, add the egg yolks, alternating with the dissolved gelatin and the remaining 1 cup confectioners' sugar.

Continue to beat until smooth. Fold in one-third of the egg whites.

Quickly but gently fold in the remaining egg whites.

Beat the remaining lemon juice into the whipped cream and fold into the mousse.

Turn into a serving dish or stemmed wine glasses, cover and refrigerate until chilled and set, about 3 hours.

Lynn, I have to be honest that your photography skills have become better and better. These two photos not only look delicious, I think they can be also used as the covers of food magazines, truly from my heart feeling :) Nice job!

Thank you very much! (I just now saw your comment). This makes me feel very good.
