ONLY 4 ingredients. If you love lemon then you are absolutely going to love this recipe. The Lemon Mousse Dessert Quick Easy recipe appealed to me mainly because of the lemon and it can be made quickly and stored up to two days. It does have to sit for 30 minutes before serving so you can make it before you start your meal and it is ready to serve when it is dessert time.
I have made this recipe countless times and it has always been perfect. Maybe I was just lucky as I have had other recipes not turn out as well. It is the recipe I use for just the two of us or I double it if we are having company. The recipe is originally from Martha Stewart’s Dinner at Home recipe book on page 28. This is a great book if you want relatively quick meals.
The first thing I do is get the lemon juice squeezed. This is the only part that takes some time if you are not a practiced juicer. I love my antique juicer. Since I don’t have a ton of room for storage in my kitchen this old fashioned juicer doesn’t take much room and work effectively.
The recipe says to stir in the eggs, lemon and sugar in a saucepan. I find I make a smaller mess if I put the eggs in first and whisk them so they are fairly smooth then add the sugar, whisk and then the lemon.
Put the whisk away because from this point on you should only use a wooden spoon. Slowly heat it until the mixture is thick enough to coat the spoon. If there is a tricky part is figuring out the thickness of the lemon mixture. Below does show you the mixture does cling to the spoon. It definitely should not be watery.
