IMG_0720_2

After a kinda chaotic month I have again something to show you. This time I have no big story to tell you about this dessert, just that I found this recipe in a Home Decoration magazine at my mum’s and thought that could be worthy of a post 😉

Since my favourite dessert EVER is cheesecake, everything that is cheesecake-like this recipe caught my eye like in seconds. It has a very soft taste and preparation time it’s around 35 minutes wich makes it perfect as a dessert for a dinner party at home.

Ingredients for 4 portions

For the pears

  • 2 pears
  • 120 gr sugar
  • 1 lime
  • a cinnamon stick

For the base

  • 40 gr biscuits
  • 20 gr butter

For the mousse

  • 200 gr quark cheese
  • 2 gelatine leafs
  • 60 gr sugar
  • 1 lime
  • 200 ml whipped cream

Preparation

Soak the gelatine in water. Drain and cook with the lime juice and sugar for some minutes. Mix with the quark cheese. Whip the cream and mix carefully with the rest. Pour the mixture into 4 moulds and freeze for 3 hours.

Peel and dice the pears. Cook t 6 minutes with 200 ml water, sugar, cinnamon stick, lime peel and juice.

Crush the biscuits and mix with softened butter. Use 3 TBs of the biscuit mix as base, remove the mousse from its mould and put it on the base. Decorate each mousse with the pear compote. Serve cold.

*You can also do a toffee sauce as decoration. Cook 100 gr of sugar stirring till brown. Add 100 ml of cream and stir till incorporated. Pour over the mousse and serve.
