    2      envelopes     unflavored gelatin
      1/2  cup           cold water
    6                    egg yolks
      1/2  cup           sugar
      1/2  cup           lemon juice
    6                    egg whites
           pinch         salt
      1/2  cup           sugar
      1/2  teaspoon      cream of tartar
    1      cup           heavy cream
   24                    ladyfinger cookies
                         sweetened whipped cream -- optional
 Dissolve gelatin in cold water.  Beat egg yolks in a medium-size bowl until
 light.  Add sugar and gelatin mixture and lemon juice.  Put bowl in hot
 water (as in preparing hollandaise) and cook, whisking steadily, until
 mixture is smooth and slightly thickened.  Remove from heat and cool.  (I
 would use a double boiler for this).
 Beat egg whites until stiff and glossy, adding the 1/2 cup sugar gradually.
 Add salt and cream of tartar.  Fold egg whites into egg yolk mixture.  Whip
 cream until thickened but not completely stiff.  Fold into egg mixture.  
 Butter bottom of a 9-inch springform pan (or use cooking spray) and line
 with ladyfingers.  Stand ladyfingers up around the sides.  Spoon souffle
 mixture into pan and refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours.  
 Remove from springform pan and serve with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.
