This was a delicious dessert! Thank you for sharing. The mousse part was perfect. I followed the recipe as is, except the grocery store had green lemons, I only had 1/2 of one at home, plus I picked up another one. I didn't measure the lemon juice, just used the juice from 1-1/2 lemons, then added 4 drops of real lemon oil from a Health Food store. I didn't have a springform pan so I used two 9" pie pans, used a whole box of the vanilla wafers (probabaly around 75 and FYI I'd call these cookies if it didn't say wafers on the box) and added a bit more butter to the base to make two bases. There was enough filling and whip cream in this recipe to make into two pies, about 1" deep. I almost only gave it 4 stars because of two things: (I think these are just personal preferences) A) I didn't like the hard candy crunchy texture. I put the hard candies in the food processor, so the pieces were quite fine. Maybe that didn't help. (The candies were also hard to find, who would have known?) B) I served it frozen and before I froze it, it was a wonderful thick consistency. It was still delcious frozen, and would be amazing on a hot summer day, I might try it again but plan on serving in individual cups, omitting the crust and the hard candies, and just refrigerating.
