    Mirj's Note:

    I had a guest on a low carb diet and she gave me this recipe. It's really lemony and delicious. There was a slight aspartime aftertaste, but for those trying to cut back on the carbs it's a great dessert! Prep time includes chilling.

      If you use Splenda in place of (sweet n low) or any other sugar substitute you won't have an after taste, Splenda is used for baking and has less than 1 gram of Carb per tsp.

      We did not care for this at all. The texture was very airy, almost watery - not mousse-like. And the egg flavor was too strong. The directions also seem incomplete or contain errors (the extract is listed to add with the egg white and with the cream).

      I liked this. I wasted the first batch because I had the butter too hot and all the yolks cooked. My fault. So I tried again and had the butter just warm. I made some for the fridge and the other I put in paper cups and froze. They taste like ice cream (put a squirt of canned whipped cream on it for more sweetness). It made a lot. Liked it frozen much more. Thanks
