Blanc Disclosure: Cheese Mousse with Mixed Berries, Blueberry cheese pie comes alive again.

 When I was little, blueberry cheese pie was my favorite dessert and I wandered "is it hard to make?". And it became one of my early desserts that I could make. 

 When the time passed, baking is still my beloved hobby, but blueberry cheese pie is something that I rarely make. There's nothing wrong with it, and I still love it ^^, the only problem is making the same thing again and again makes me bored, haha.
I think about it and rally want to find the way to make it more interesting, and lovelier. So this time, I turn the simple dessert into something cute, the blueberry compote is not on top of the cheese mixture but inside, and fresh mixed berries make the dessert more refreshing.
The method is not hard to follow but the result is different from the original blueberry cheese pie. You will see white and soft cheese mousse on the outside but when cut through the mousse the jewel like blueberry compote is waiting for you inside. The biscuit crumbs are out of the way, and the soft sponge cake is here to give you soft and light feeling. I can tell you that I really love it ^^ the mousse is not too sweet and goes very well with the taste of the blueberry compote and fresh berry.
Turning the simple thing into something special is fun, well, I know that you will agree with me when you taste this dessert too.

Your desserts all look so delicious. I have a question and hope you can help me answer it. This recipe is asking for 4 g of gelatin sheets. How much of gelatin powder would I use in place of gelatin sheets? Thanks a lot.

dailydelicious said...

You will use the same amount of the gelatin but soften the gelatin powder with 1tbsp of water.
