Using cooking cheese instead of cream cheese in the mousse makes this dessert stand out with an extra luxurious feeling when savoury meets sweet.
Use a different dish for each portion. Looks nice and trendy
For a dinner party, I have to say that after cooking for hours– enjoying and cooking , I must add - that by the time I get to the dessert, I’m ready to do something quite simple. Without compromising on taste, of course. Making a layered dessert, something of a cross between a cheese cake and Eton mess always pampers the diners with beautiful, welcomed individual portions.
You can use any combination of cookies, nuts and fresh berries, perhaps even add a caramel or chocolate sauce. Feel free to change the recipe to suit the ingredients at hand and your creative mind. The heart of this dessert, the thing that makes it different from any other dessert, is using Apetina cooking cheese for the mousse. It is saltier than cream cheese which is usually used for cheese cake-y type of things, and combined with fluffy whipped cream, sugar and lemon it is a real winner.
So start with the mousse. Add the freshest berries around and your favourite nut combo. Build the dessert into a wine glass or tumbler, jar or dessert bowl. Or choose a different dish for each eater. Everything goes. Just remember the cheese mousse!.Instructions:
Whip the cream until light and fluffy. Crumble in the cheese and add sugar, mix well. Season with lemon juice. Smash the biscuits into crumbles (put them in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to roll over them), roast and chop nuts. Cut up the strawberries if they're very big.
Take four drinking glasses or dessert bowls and start layering the ingredients. Start with biscuit crumbles, then cheese mousse, berries, nuts and repeat - at least once to make some nice layers. Top with mint leaves.
