    WicklewoodWench's Note:

    I have recently been introduced to lemon bars, and this is like a giant luxury lemon bar but instead of lemon curd I have used lemon mousse to make a delicious gluten free twist on a lemon chiffon pie. It may seem a quite complex method but don’t be put off it really is worth the effort and never fails to impress. Time includes chilling.
