Lemon lovers will love this delicious lemon curd mousse which is sweet & tangy!

Lemon Curd Mousse

It is not surprising that I am sharing another recipe with lemon as I love lemon desserts.  I’ve talked about my love to lemon curd before.  I like its tangy flavor and smooth texture.  It is very easy to make a lemon mousse with lemon curd.  Just make my homemade lemon curd which takes only 10 minutes to make and fold it into whipped cream.  And you have your mousse.  It’s that easy.

I want to present my lemon curd with candied lemon slices and vanilla cookies.  I use my Easy Slice-and-Bake Vanilla Cookies recipe which is crunchy.  You don’t need to make these cookies as slice-and- bake for this recipe.  Just make the dough, flatten them and put them into the oven. In  14 minutes your cookies will be ready.  As I like crunchy and soft texture together, crunchy vanilla cookies and silky lemon curd folded into whipped cream make a nice combination.

Whipped Heavy Cream

I take my homemade lemon curd from the fridge.   I whip the heavy cream.  Then my niece folds lemon curd into heavy cream in 3-4 batches.

Folding the lemon curd into heavy cream.

We put 6 vanilla cookies in a plastic zip lock bag and my niece crushes the cookies with a rolling pin to make small pieces.

Then she puts 2 tablespoons of crushed cookies into each cup.  Later she adds almost 4 tablespoons of lemon curd mousse on top of the crushed cookies.  She adds crushed cookies again and puts almost 2,5 tablespoons of lemon curd mousse.

We put the candied lemon slices on top.  My niece wants to add some more crushed cookies.  So we add them on top and our delicious lemon curd mousse is ready.  Enjoy!
