Lemon Mousse {Chit Chat Chomp-Inspired}

Now that my July SRC reveal for Chit Chat Chomp has been posted, I decided to post the recipes I made, separately, so they're searchable - because they were all delicious! Enjoy.


Lemon Mousse
Adapted from Chit Chat Chomp - I used a tad less butter and less sugar than Leigh's original recipe, but the process remained the same.


juice and zest from 3 lemons
1/2 C organic granulated sugar
4 eggs, separated
1/2 C butter

Place the lemon juice, zest, sugar, and egg yolks in a double boiler and cook over a low heat, whisking until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. It took about 15 minutes. It will resemble a zabaglione. Remove from heat and whisk in 2 T of butter at a time. Let cool.

Whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the egg whites into the lemon mixture. Spoon into individual serving glasses and refrigerate until set and firm.
