Mousse à la pistache sur lit de fraises croquant

Today, I propose a new verrines recipe flavored with pistachio. Crunchy brought with crushed shortbreads in the bottom and pistachio flakes sprinkled on top. Strawberries, meanwhile, bring a bit of acidity and a lot of sweetness. The base is a mascarpone cream lightened with whipped cream and flavoured with pistachio paste. This ingredient has become essential in patisserie for making macaroons! Despite its popularity, it’s still not easy to get them. I bought my first batch of pistachio paste on the internet, a 1kg can! Usually you can keep the paste for 2 years and if you share a bit with some friends is coming soon to end.

I let you succumb to the delights of this pistachio mousse !

  • Crush the biscuits in coarse pieces. Be careful not to reduce the biscuits in powder, they must bring crisp to this recipe.

  • Start the dressing. For this, fill a piping bag of pistachio mascarpone cream. The trick to not bother to fill a piping bag is to place the bag in a large container and return the top of the piping bag on the edges of the container. Try to bend the end of the bag so that the mixture does not leave during filling (e.g., turn the top of the pocket on itself 2-3 times in order to block the passage).
