mascarpone mousse

Mascarpone Mousse sounds like it would be rich, but it is surprisingly light and airy. It’s a nice chilled, no-bake dessert for the oppressively hot summer days we’ve been having. I think it would go well with just about any summer fruit, too…here I topped it with some of the Roasted Rhubarb with Bitters I made for our last posting.

To make the mousse, mascarpone and honey-sweetened cream are mixed together. Then a simple meringue is folded through the mix to give it its delicate texture. There is a little gelatin as well to help it set up. That’s not my favorite ingredient, but I did use it here. The recipe says it makes four servings, but I got six that I thought were quite reasonably sized.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll.

  1. I loved how light this was! Making again soon!

  2. This was a lovely summer dessert. My plan was to make more rhubarb since my husband loved it but the store was out so we went with strawberries.

  3. Wasn’t this just devine! I was sad because I took my extra mousse to work and it ended up being thrown out. I should have been a greedy guys and ate it all myself.
