Timeless Chocolate Mousse Pie
For my first submission (and second pie baked EVER) I chose to create a timeless, sophisticated and rich chocolate mousse pie – inspired the timeless fashion icon Jackie Kennedy.
6 tsp butter, melted
Mix the butter and graham crackers. Press into 9in pie pan and bake at 250 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
8oz Cream Cheese, softened
1c Powered sugar
1-1/2 tsp Vanilla
2 c Heavy Whipping cream
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and coco until smooth. Add Powered sugar and vanilla. Beat until smooth. In a medium bowl, beat heavy cream until stiff. Fold whipped cream into chocolate cheese mixture. Spread into pre-baked chocolate graham crust. If desired, garnish with chocolate shavings, caramel and/or whipped cream. (in this case I added a whipped cream garnish to symbolize Jackie's classic pearls!)
