Apples & rose mascarpone mousse verrines


Tropical smoothie

Enjoy !!

Apple & Rose Mascarpone Mousse Verrine Recipe

Ingredients :

3 apples ( I have used Gala)
1 tbsp of rose jam ( original recipe was with honey but i wanted a touch of spring with a touch of flowery taste)
2 tsp of butter
6-8 speculoos
250 gr of mascarpone
2 eggs
1 tbsp of confectioner’s sugar
vanilla extract
cinnamon (optional)

Directions :
  • Crush the speculoos using a mortar and pestle,or in a plastic bag using a rolling pin.

seared apples
  • Wash, peel, and dice the apples. Brown them in a pan with some butter. After a few minutes of cooking, add the rose jam and cinnamon if you wish. Cook over low heat until apples are soft, browned.
Mascarpone mousse
  • Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.
  • Beat the eggs yolks with he sugar and vanilla if desired, until the mixture becomes pale. Gently whisk in the mascarpone
  • Beat the eggs whites until they form stiff peaks. Incorporate them into the mascarpone mixture gently. Set aside.

  • put a layer of crushed sepculoos in the bottom of verrines, then add a layer of mascarpone, then a layer of apples, Decorate with wallnuts.

With remaining mascarpone mousse and speculoos, i did a Tiramisu.

-Sources and credits : me , recipes done by me too, here are the original pics which really dont do justice to the dishes (pic 1, pic 2) I have taken i just wanted to do a special presentation, like you have on cooking websites.

-Honestly both recipes were great, that said i was disappointed by the rose jam, it has almost no rose flavor, or it was not noticeable, too bad i wanted just a little touch of rose fragrance, but the taste was overall really good.

- As for the smoothie, i tend to add just a little of milk to lessen a little the acidity of the fruits.
