Happy Father's Day Dessert!

Another fun morning with Dao and Shawn on the Vegas Morning Blend!!  I was asked to whip up a delicious dessert for dear old dad and I brought out an oldie but goodie with a few changes to make it faster and easier! 

Here's the video from this morning.

And here is the recipe so you can make it yourself!  If you love lime...this has got a great lime zing to it!

White Chocolate-Key Lime Mousse Pie
With Fresh Strawberries

Recipe Courtesy of Chef Doreen Fang

Serves 8

1 ½ cups          Graham-cracker crumbs
7 Tbsp              Unsalted butter, melted and cooled
3 Tbsp              Sugar

½ cup              Fresh Key Lime juice
1 tsp                 Unflavored gelatin
1 cup               Chilled heavy whipping cream
5 oz                  White chocolate, chopped or chips
1 tsp                 Grated lime peel
6 Tbsp              Powdered sugar
3 Tbsp              Sour cream

2 – 12 oz basket Strawberries, hulled, dried and sliced
1/3 cup (approx) Seedless strawberry jam
Mint for garnish

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  In a medium bowl combine the graham-cracker, sugar and melted butter and mix well till thoroughly combined.  Press mixture into a 9 inch pie plate.  Bake till lightly brown, approximately 10-12 minutes.  Remove and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.

Put lime juice in a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over the juice.  Let it stand for 10 minutes to soften the gelatin.  In a medium sauce pan, bring ¼ cup heavy cream to a simmer.  Reduce heat to low and add the white chocolate; stir until melted and completely smooth.  Add the lime/gelatin mixture.  Stir till the mixture completely dissolves with the white chocolate mixture; add the lime peel, mixing thoroughly. Transfer to a med/large bowl and chill mixture, stirring often, until the mixture is cold and has thicken but not set yet.  About 45 minutes. 

Beat the remaining ¾ cup of cream, powdered sugar and sour cream to medium-stiff peaks in a medium bowl over an ice bath.  Fold the whipped cream mixture into the white chocolate/key lime mixture till fully incorporated.  Spoon the mousse into the crust, spreading it evenly across the crust.  Chill mousse till it sets, approximately 4 hours.  This can be made a day in advance. Covered and refrigerated.

Melt jam in a small sauce pan over low heat, stir often.  Allow to cool.  In a large bowl, add the strawberry slices and add the melted jam and using a rubber spatula, gently fold the jam and strawberries; covering all the slices with jam.

Starting with the outside edge closest to the crust, arrange the berries slices one at a time, with the tips facing outward, making a circle.  Once you’ve gone all the way around you will begin the next layer, slightly overlapping the next layer of berries on top of the last layer.  Continue laying out the berries in a circle as they get smaller and closer to the center and end with a few berry slices in the middle.  You are creating a flower and the slices are the “petals”.  

Again, this can be done about 3 hours prior to serving.  Keep covered and refrigerated. 

Garnish with mint prior to serving.

Slice, serve and enjoy!

The certification website though does not reveal any major specifications of the smartphone. However, it was noted that this Realme smartphone comes with Bluetooth v5.1.

    Over five millennia ago, the ancient Taoist White Cloud monks living in the mountains of China discovered that stagnation of energy (chi) flow in the body interfered with their ability to achieve and maintain higher states of awareness through meditation. This chi stagnation was the primary cause of many physical as well as emotional maladies. They developed a healing art form called Chi Nei Tsang or CNT (which I call Abdominal Chi Massage) to help them alleviate the impediments they encountered. {tag: Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cloud White Size 11}

    Puig, who split last year between the two Ohio based teams, told the El Nuevo Herald that the Miami Marlins were one of several teams to make him an offer. The outfielder said, via translation from The Score, that he rejected the Marlins offer in part because he wanted little more to play in front of my Cubans, close to my homeland. 29 year old Puig didn elaborate on any other interested teams, however his level of optimism dipped when discussing the potential of the MLB season beginning in 2020.. {tag: Adidas Yeezy Boost Black White}
