Lemon Mousse

If you like zesty, then this is the perfect dessert for you.

This is an absolute gem after a heavy, rich main meal. The mousse is very much like a custard, but as I mentioned .. zesty!

I think they look kind of cute served this way.  

Lemon Mousse

Grated Peel of one Lemon
1 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
1 cup White Wine  {I used a dry white}, divided
3/4 cup Sugar, divided
4 TB Corn Flour
2 Egg Yolks
3 Egg Whites
4 Lemons
Mint Leaves to decorate, optional
Extra grated Lemon Peel, optional

1.) Place the Grated Lemon Peel, Lemon Juice, 1/2 cup White wine and 1/2 cup Sugar in a saucepan - simmer on medium heat.
2.) Meanwhile, mix the Corn Flour with the Egg Yolks and the remaining 1/2 cup White Wine, add to the saucepan, stir continuously until thick (2 - 3 minutes)
3.) Beat the Egg Whites until stiff - adding the remaining 1/4 cup Sugar gradually - fold into the warm mixture - transfer to a bowl, let the mousse cool and chill for at least 3 hours.
4.) Cut a lid off the tops of the Lemons and hollow out - Fill with the Mousse and add a Mint Leave and some extra grated Lemon Peel, if using.
