  • 1 recipe -380 g homemade lemon curd*
  • 235 g (1 cup) heavy cream, cold
  • ¼ recipe -125 g Easy Slice-and-Bake Vanilla Cookies**
  • 1 recipe Candied Lemon Slices***, optional


  • Make the lemon curd and let it cool.  While it is cooling, make the vanilla cookies, and let them cool.  If you want to make candied lemon slices, you can start making them while vanilla cookies are baking.
  • When the lemon curd is cool, whip the heavy cream with a hand-held mixer or with a stand mixer using a whisk attachment at medium speed for almost 3-4 minutes until it holds soft peaks.
  • Gently fold lemon curd into the heavy cream in 3-4 batches.
  • Put the cooled cookies in a plastic ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  • For medium sized serving glasses: Put 2 tablespoons of crushed cookies into the glasses, then cover the top of the cookies with approximately 4 tablespoons of lemon mousse. Later put 1 and ½ tablespoons of cookie crumbs on top of the lemon mousse. Then put 2 and ½ tablespoons of lemon mousse. You can decorate each glass with a candied lemon slice and sprinkle some crushed cookies on top of the mousse.  Keep in the fridge and serve cold.
