NY Style Cheesecake Mousse

TJ has been in the mood for a mousse for the past couple of weeks, but since I’m a nut, and I’ve had my blogging recipes for the year schedule out since December, I told him to wait a bit until it was time for this one. Well, TJ’s verdict is in, and this mousse was definitely worth the wait.

It tastes, well, just like a cheesecake, but with a definitively mousse-y quality. What am I even saying? Haha, basically just know that this is delicious, and the title of it describes exactly what it tastes like. Sometimes, there’s just no more to say than that!

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream

In a chilled bowl, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form; refrigerate.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice until smooth.

Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
