No-Bake Lemon Mousse Cheesecake

Springtime is in the air, and that means I’m thinking all things lemon! Fresh squeezed lemonade, lemon poppyseed muffins and my favorite – homemade lemon curd.

Lemon Mousse Cheesecakes made with real lemon curd

Last spring, I shared with you how to make your own lemon curd tartlets and lemon cured napoleons. This year I’m using that basic curd recipe and taking it a step further to make these amazingly delicious No-Bake Lemon Mousse Cheesecakes.

If you’ve never had homemade lemon curd, you’re in for a treat. It’s simple to make and just so full of sweet lemon flavor.

These Mini Lemon Mousse Cheesecakes are made extra special because of the Nonni’s Limone Biscotti that I crushed and used as the base.

I simply popped two boxes of the Biscotti into my Ninja Blender and pulsed a few times until they were the texture of fine bread crumbs. Then, I mixed them with some melted butter for the perfect lemony cheesecake base.

Rich in flavor, crunchy texture and delicately sweet, Nonni’s Biscotti are made from real, wholesome ingredients, including eggs, butter and sugar.

For The Crust
