Creamy comfort desserts are the best.  And when those creamy comfort desserts are incredibly easy?  Well, that's even better.  And truly, with just three simple ingredients, this Lemon Mousse recipe couldn't be any easier.

All it takes to whip up this fluffy Lemon Mousse is:

1. Whipping cream
2. Sugar, and
3. Lemon curd

With the whipping cream and sugar, you mix up some homemade whipped cream to serve as the foundation of the mousse.  Then, you simply stir in a little lemon curd.

That's it.  Easy as can be!

Look for prepared lemon curd with the jellies and jams in your grocery store.  Or, you can make your own homemade lemon curd.

Sometimes I make my own lemon curd, and sometimes I buy it.  It just depends on how much time I have.  If I've got a little available time floating around? ... I make my own.  If I want to whip up this 3-ingredient Lemon Mousse recipe extra fast? ... I grab a jar from the store.

Once prepared, spoon the Lemon Mousse mixture into individual serving dishes.  Top the servings with raspberries, a shortbread cookie, and perhaps a little dollop of more lemon curd if you'd like ... and then get ready to enjoy fluffy lemony goodness.

Easy.  Just three simple ingredients. And creamy comfort. -- What's not to love?
