Special mousse of lemon curd

Good morning

Today I want to wish you a happy day with this recipe of so simple and exquisite mousse of lemon.

This mousse of lemon is of better that I have tried. Instead of using scum mounted to give him sponginess I am going to do a French meringue ( mount whites of egg with sugar). Hereby I will manage to give him a lot of air to the mousse and elegance. In this case I have prepared the mousse to serve it in the tablecloth accompanying to the coffee and to the glasses and there have gone out for me 15 glasses of 50ml.

It remains for 48 hours in the freeze , not more, on having taken meringue is delicate!.

I hope that you me like so much like!
