Schlop, schlop, beautiful schlop. Beautiful schlop with a cherry on top.
In our house, we love Dr. Seuss. Here’s Exhibit A, Exhibit B, and Exhibit C (a full list of all our Suess-inspired posts is at the bottom of this post). And since his birthday is coming up (March 2) along with Read Across America Day, we wanted to do some posts that celebrated Dr. Seuss. And if you’re going to celebrate a birthday, you naturally think about something sweet. “You can think about schlop. Schlop, schlop, beautiful schlop. Beautiful schlop with a cherry on top.” – Oh the Thinks You Can Think
Now, don’t let the name deter you. I may have named it schlop, but it’s really, Lemon Cheesecake Mousse. Now you know that sounds delicious. And it is delicious.
And depending on your preference, this can be either totally homemade, or with a storebought shortcut, you can make this in 10 minutes or less!
If you are opting to make it totally homemade, you will need to make some lemon curd. I made the recipe found here, that you can find below.
Then you mix some lemon curd with some softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until it’s light and creamy.
Next is to whip up some cream. Now, I’m a stand mixer, through and through, but oftentimes I will have a recipe that calls for mixing or whipping two things, but I only have one mixer bowl. And that’s where this awesome tool comes in.
I got this Oxo hand mixer for my birthday last year, and I looooove it. Now, I am in no way affiliated with this product, but I just wanted to share some kitchen awesomeness. This thing works so well. It’s easy to spin. You can rest it on the bottom of the bowl. The mixers detach and are dishwasher safe. It is awesome. So if you need to whip cream or egg whites often (like me!), you need one of these, STAT!
Okay, back to the recipe, so you whip up some lovely cream.
And then you fold it gently into the lemon curd/cream cheese mixture.
And you’re done! Plop and cherry on it, if you desire, and call it dessert.
