Lemon Torte

I came across this recipe recently and cannot remember who gave it to me. I think it was my sister-in-law Leah. I have had it in my recipe file for over 20 years now and I know that it is one of those recipes that is so easy to make, you wonder why you don't make it more often. It has that lovely lemon tart taste to it and is delicious.

3/4 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon rind - finely grated
1 1/2 tablespoons orange rind - " "
300 ml carton cream - whipped
