Lemon cream

I made Dorie Greenspan's lemon cream tart filling and the it is too soupy (has been in the fridge a few hours and is not thickening). Any ideas for how I might salvage it?

Here's a post by Dorie about people having trouble getting the cream to thicken properly, and some tips -- sounds like it's the same tart. Probably more helpful for the next time you make this. How about turning it into a lemon mousse tart? You could whip some heavy cream and then gently fold in the lemon cream for a firmer tart filling.
