made curd before, Pierre Herme's version. I know I printed this recipe many years ago and labeled it Lemon Mousse. So I don't know if the correct title is supposed to be curd or mousse. I have a feeling because it has butter that it is a curd and not a mousse.
What do you think of using this recipe instead?

1/3 cup cool water
3 tsp (1 pkg) Knox unflavored gelatin
3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Zest of 4 lemons
6 large eggs, separated (keep 4 of whites)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup sugar (for whites)
1 cup heavy cream
