More About This Recipe

  • One of my favorite ingredients has always been peanut butter. It’s incredibly delicious and can be used in savory or sweet dishes, from simple peanut butter on toast to many other more complicated recipes. Whenever I taste this ingredient, I am immediately transported to my childhood and I am reminded of my paternal grandfather who would always bring me jars of peanut butter because he knew how much I loved it. I would always devour them with either bread and guava jelly, or crackers; sometimes I’d add a spoonful to my milk or mix it with chocolate. It was magical… and delicious! This recipe started out as a pie, but has evolved over time into this creamy and delicate pastry. Believe it or not, peanut butter actually has a very subtle taste that isn’t too invasive, making this dessert perfect for any occasion. You can make it ahead of time and keep it refrigerated. Leave it at room temperature for 15 minutes so it’s not frozen when you serve it and the creamy texture of the mousse can be enjoyed. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this dessert as much as I do!
