Lemon Mousse and Raspberry Sauce

June 12, 2010

Lemon is a big favorite for summer desserts and this is one of the lightest, fluffiest desserts you might be craving this summer.  It is a super fast desert, IF you have planned in advance, as you do need the Lemon Curd.  Since I enjoy both deserts I usually make extra lemon curd in anticipation of this dessert as it will last a few days in the refrigerator.  It is delicious just own its own or add some fresh fruit and as a special treat some raspberry sauce.
