Here's the recipe as it appears in Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express:
Lemon Mascarpone Mousse
Try substituting orange rind and juice for the lemon and add a touch of Grand Marnier in place of the cream.
Finely grate the rind of a lemon. Whisk together a cup of mascarpone, the lemon’s juice and grated rind, and about a quarter cup of sugar (or more to taste) until smooth. Add a tablespoon or two of heavy cream to moisten if needed. If you have time, chill for a bit before serving in pudding cups; top with a drizzle of honey and serve with ladyfingers.
