blackberries with mascarpone and goat cheese mousse

It has been a day.  I have felt like I was run over by a very large truck all day.  Then I could not seem to breathe, but then I was not the only one (we figure the weather blew something in).  But the last bit that really put me over the edge was that I started to have nose bleeds.  

How did I deal with this?  I came home and slept.  Then I cooked.  Everything for dinner was something new.  It really was not that hard but it did help that I started part of it this morning in the crockpot.  I just prefer well cooked lentils.  

I let my Beloved chose what I blogged about today.  He chose the dessert.  Light but satisfying.  Creamy.  Cheesey.  Blackberries.  It was not a lot of work, even by hand, except Small Mister wanted to help me beat the whipping cream and sugar together.  That did not work very well.  It all came together in the end.  It helped that I kept letting him taste as I go so I could stir.  Small Mister was the one I was thinking about but both males are official tasters at this point in my life.

I did this with blackberries but I think it would be good with any berry or maybe even cherries.  Oooo.... bing cherries.... Too bad they are out of season.

blackberries with mascarpone and goat cheese mousse

Note:  adapted from Tartelette, I read the recipe once and decided to go from there.

1 cup blackberries

2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup goat cheese

1/4 cup mascarpone cheese

Put the blackberries in a bowl and sprinkle with the 2 tablespoons of sugar.  I find blackberries tart.  If you do not, feel free to change the amount of sugar you use.

In a medium bowl, mix the goat cheese and mascarpone cheese together until smooth.  In yet another bowl, put the 1/2 cup sugar and heavy whipping cream in.  Beat together until thick.  Mix into the cheese mixture.  Refrigerate if not serving immediately.

When you are ready to serve, scoop the mousse into bowls.  Top with blackberries.  

Eat with a spoon. Scrape the bowl clean.  i am not being facetious.
