Has your child ever made you want to scream? Mine has. In a way, I’m glad my kids are not perfect angels all the time because it would be too boring. The most difficult thing about parenting is that my little ones don’t always listen and they can test my patience at times. When I feel myself getting irritated with them, sometimes the best thing for me to do is take a break from them and make something in the kitchen instead of dealing with their antics. This blue cheese mousse recipe is one of those recipes that will calm you down when you’re feeling frazzled or frustrated by your children’s behavior.
prep: 15 mins total: 15 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 servings
freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 (4 ounce) package cream cheese
6 ounces crumbled blue cheese
? cup heavy whipping cream
kosher salt to taste
Puree blue cheese and cream cheese together in a food processor until completely smooth; transfer to a bowl and season with kosher salt and black pepper.
Beat heavy cream in a glass or metal bowl until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the whipped cream will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Fold whipped cream into the blue cheese mixture, stirring until the mixture is creamy with no lumps.
Transfer mixture to a pastry bag with a round tip for piping.
