Fresh Lemon Mousse

This recipe (Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics) was rather involved, with multiple steps for a lemon custard, egg whites, and whipped cream, but none of the steps were all that complicated or difficult to follow, and it all came together beautifully.  If I were interested in a more beautiful presentation, I would have found a smaller souffle dish, and I would have piped the whipped cream on top in a decorative pattern with lemon slices.  As it was, this was going straight from the souffle dish into our gaping maws, so the presentation would have been wasted.  Again, the fresh whipped cream impressed my husband beyond words.  I love that simple man.
