1. Heat the cream cheese in a microwave at 600W for about 30 seconds until soft and creamy, then add granulated sugar and mix.

3. Combine the gelatin solution from steps 1 and 2 and mix with a whisk.

4. Add lemon juice and mix until the liquid batter becomes thicker and more concentrated.

5. Add lemon peel and mix.

6. Whip the cream until thick, then mix half of it with the remaining cream in the bowl from step 5

7. Pipe the mixture into a silicone lemon mold, tapping the mold against the stand to remove air and prevent cavities.

8. Chill in the freezer for about 3 hours to harden.

Tart Dough:

1. Cream the butter, powdered sugar, and salt until whitish.

2. Add whole eggs in batches, mixing well after each addition.

3. Add soft flour and almond powder, mixing until the dough is no longer powdery.

4. Rest the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

5. Cut the dough into pieces and bake at 170 degrees for about 15 minutes.

6. Spread a thin coat of chocolate on the cooled tart dough to prevent moisture when applying mousse.

Lemon Glazing:

1. Mix the whole eggs with granulated sugar, lemon juice, and melted butter.

2. Heat the mixture until it thickens and reaches 80 degrees.

3. Add the soaked leaf gelatin and keep it at 40 degrees.

4. Pour the glasage into the mold, removing excess with a bowl.

5. Apply the glasage to the tart dough, garnishing with mint leaves.
