Allergy free lemon mousse pie recipe

In progress shot: This is just after pouring the filling in. I have another couple of hours until it sets properly I think but that's just right as this will be for after dinner.

  • 1 pack Orgran Pastry Mix
  • ½ cup Orgran Gluten Substitute
  • 65g caster sugar
  • 125g Nuttlex
  • 5 tbsp iced water (may need more for chill a cup of water)
  • 2 tsp gelatine
  • ½ cup lemon juice (2-3 lemons)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 225g plain soft goat’s cheese
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • ½ cup goat’s milk beaten with ½ cup plain soft goat’s cheese

  • Grease your pie dish.
  • Add ½ Orgran Pastry Mix to a bowl along with Gluten Substitute, caster sugar and any other flavourings of your choosing.
  • Spoon in Nuttlex and then rub in with your fingers.
  • Add iced water and mix together.
  • Slowly add other ½ of the pastry mix, adding extra water if necessary, until mix resembles dough in dryness if not texture.
  • Do not knead, instead roll and press together.
  • Roll out pastry, dusting the counter with flour, until it is wide enough to cover your pie dish and some. If the pastry cracks then reform in bowl with a little extra water. If your pastry sticks to the counter then reform and add a little flour. Then try again.
  • Once the pastry is rolled out lift it gently into the pie dish and press in place.
  • Cut the edges with a knife.
  • Cook for approximately 15-20 minutes at 180°C or until cooked properly.
  • Take pastry from oven and set aside.
  • In a saucepan, combine gelatine, lemon juice and water.
  • Stir over medium heat until dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and stir in grated lemon zest then set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine goat’s cheese and sugar until smooth.
  • Blend in gelatine mixture.
  • Refrigerate 15 minutes until thick.
  • Fold half and half goat’s mixture into lemon mixture.
  • Spoon filling into the pastry.
  • Refrigerate until firm and set.


  1. Oooooh it is. There's only a hint of goat's milk in the final taste but it makes it just a touch like lemon cheesecake. Very nice. I do believe a second helping will be in order.
