“Meyer lemons are sweeter than ordinary lemons. The mousse is meant to be used in a crepe cake, but of course, can be eaten any way you choose. It would make a nice pie with a graham cracker crust and whipped cream on top. Or, alone or with some berries. Can be stored in the refrigerator about 3 days.”
