I learned to make and love lemon curd while living in England. This does it one better, lightening it with whipped cream to make a foolproof frozen mousse. My mother Myrna loved lemon so on Mother's Day that's what I think to make. Serve this for breakfast with mixed berries in season or as a dessert with poached peach halves and raspberry sauce, sort of an updated Peach Melba.

In a large heavy bottomed stainless steel saucepan combine the lemon juice, sugar, yolks, eggs, and butter. Over high heat whisk the mixture constantly until thickened.
