Chocolate Cranberry Mousse Pie

By

This beautiful pie is perfect to serve for holiday parties. You could use the very easy Cookie Pie Crust or the slightly more challenging Hot Water Pastry.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 9" pie crust, baked and cooled
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp. grated orange peel
  • 1 cup whole berry cranberry sauce

Preparation:

Melt white chocolate chips with 1/2 cup whipping cream over very low heat, or in the microwave, about 2 minutes on medium power. Stir until smooth. Refrigerate about 1 hour or until cool.

Melt semisweet chocolate chips with 2 Tbsp. of the cream over very low heat, or in the microwave, about 2 minutes on medium power. Stir until smooth. Spread over bottom of baked, cooled pie shell. Chill for 20 minutes until chocolate is set.

Beat the rest of the cream (1-1/4 cups plus 2 Tbsp.) until stiff. Beat cooled white chocolate-cream mixture and fold into stiffly beaten cream along with orange peel.

Layer the whipped cream mixture with the cranberry sauce over the chocolate layer in the pie shell. Pull knife gently through layers to marble. Cover well and refrigerate 6-8 hours until firm.
