07 Oct 2019 Lotus Mousse Pie & Link to NEW Shiur
This is one of the easiest desserts, ever. It’s also visually appealing and really delicious (I can’t say it meets my usual criteria of healthy… but not everything can be healthy!). It’ll be enjoyed by kids and kids-at-heart!
The recipe below makes 2 pies. You can halve it easily, but once you are making the recipe, it’s a good idea to make 2 pies at a time (saves you work later on).
Lotus Mousse Pie
You will need two ready-made (store-bought) graham cracker pie crusts. Remove the plastic lids and set the crusts aside. Note: Save those plastic lids! When you invert them and remove the label from the inside, they serve as the lid for the finished product.
Crush (by gloved hand or with a wooden spoon) 8 Lotus Biscuit Cookies into a small bowl, and set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, whip FOUR containers Rich’s Whip Non-Dairy Topping (8 oz each container), till soft peaks form.
While the whip is whipping, into a microwave-safe bowl (or pyrex measuring cup), measure 1 c. Lotus Biscoff Crunchy Spread. Warm the Lotus Spread in the microwave for 45 seconds, so it’s slightly softened.
To the beaten Rich’s Whip, add 2 packets instant vanilla pudding (3.5 oz each packet) and the softened Lotus Spread. Beat the mixture, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary, till all the ingredients are incorporated.
Transfer the mousse to the pie crusts, diving it evenly between the two crusts. Make sure to use a spatula, scraping all the mousse out of the bowl and off the beater.
The pie crusts will be full. Top the pies with the crushed Lotus cookies.
Cover the pies with the (inverted) plastic lids and freeze. Remove from the freezer a few minutes before you want to serve the dessert (It does not completely freeze so it doesn’t need to sit out for long before serving).
Happy cooking (if you can call this cooking!), b’tay’avon and enjoy!
Wishing you and your families a gmar v’chasima tova and shana tova u’mesuka.
