Irish Crème Moussecarpone Pie

Scott Anderson


This pie was created after working with Wisconsin mascarpone in a variety of fashions including simply blending equal parts of mascarpone and chocolate. I took it one step further and created a crispy crust of fresh chopped pretzels, a little bit of butter and some brown sugar for sweetness.

It’s a nice dessert to have ready in a few minutes and that all it takes to make this delicious creamy dessert. You need about 6 minutes to cook the crust to set it and then about 5-8 minutes to blend the chocolate that you melted into the fresh mascarpone cheese. It really is that simple and your guests will think you went to great lengths; going to a bakery to purchase the pie or that you spent a lot of time in the kitchen creating this masterpiece.
