      Sorry because I do not write English very well. This mousse is fantastic, really, really good. The only change I made was 1 1/4 cup of sugar instead 1 cup. Tanks for this recipe. LAU1319

      Fabulous! Needed a small lemon dessert for a girls' night food pairing/wine tasting. Thanks for the tip about adding the zest with the lemon juice. I put it into a large ziploc and squeezed it into 11 champagne glasses. Garnished with a single red raspberry. Gorgeous! They might start believing I can cook!

      This is very light and fresh tasting, I think it had just the right amount of lemon flavor for us, I loved the added lemon zest which I added with the lemon juice. The two hour fridge time was right on. I would like to try this recipe with fresh lime juice as well. Thanks for sharing this recipe, its one I plan on making again. Made for the Taste of Yellow in the cooking photo forum.
