    MarieRynr's Note:

    Don't let the title fool you into thinking this is a complicated dessert. Scoops of lemon flavoured mousse balance here on wings of Indian-spiced phyllo dough. This recipe makes more phyllo crisps than you'll need, but they can replace any that may break along the way and are delicious on their own. For the lemon curd you can use your own recipe,my recipe, storebought curd, or any other recipe you prefer.
