MaryBerry Mascarpone Mousse Cups
This no-bake, naturally low-sugar dessert combines the grown-up sophistication of mascarpone & rosemary layered atop a shortbread crust and set beneath the sweet, fresh pop of ripe blueberries. Yet, let your heart be cheered. Big-people flavor ain’t no reason to sing the blues. Served as single-size helpings in Large Party Cups you can’t help but feel giddy as a kid while plastic-spooning into layer after layer of happy-go-snappy flavors. Zee boppa zoopity bow WOW!
*
SHORTBREAD CRUST
1 c. shortbread cookie crumbs
3 T. butter, melted
1 T. honey
Zest of 1 lemon
In a small bowl, place finely crushed cookie crumbs then add butter, honey and lemon zest. Stir until mixture is well coated. Spoon into 12 party cups and allow to cool & firm before topping with Hidden Blueberry Sauce and Mascarpone Mousse.

*

HIDDEN BLUEBERRY SAUCE
1/2 c. blueberry preserves, slightly heated
In a small bowl, microwave blueberry preserves until warm and slightly runny. Spoon a teaspoon of sauce in each cup over cooled crust.
*
MASCARPONE MOUSSE
1 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
1/4 c. honey
8 oz. mascarpone
1 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary, well crushed*
1/4 tsp. salt
In a large bowl, whip cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add remaining ingredients and whip until light and fluffy (about 1 minute more.) Spoon into each cup atop Hidden Blueberry Sauce. Top with blueberries and serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate up to 48 hours.
*To crush the rosemary, I measured the needed amount, zipped it into a plastic bag, then rolled a wooden rolling pin over it until the large sprigs of rosemary were nicely smooshed.
*
BLUEBERRY TOPPING
1 1/2 c. fresh blueberries
Wash & dry blueberries. Spoon generously atop mousse in each cup. Chill, if needed, to firm cups before serving.

    Ok, so I have what may be a dumb question…..where on earth do you find the mascarpone? I have looked high and low and have had no success thus far.

    I love your cupcake (and blueberry) conversations! :) And this looks absolutely scrumptious! I just learned that my 1.5-yr-old absolutely loves blueberries, so we'll expand her horizons a little. :)

    Is there a substitute for marscapone cheese? My husband is allergic to it. Your blog is so darling!

    LeAnn & Joanna-

    Thanks for your questions!

    Mascaropone can typcially be found in the deli-cheese section. It will be in a small 8 oz.tub, simliar to cream cheese.

    ACTUALLY, mascarpone IS an Italian cream cheese. So, you could simply substitute plain old philadelphia cream cheese for the mascarpone in this recipe, should you desire.

    THANKS! Happy baking!

    Okay, I had a lot of time alone this last week and, I kid you not, I kept tasting your blueberry/rosemary slice of heaven as I was driving. I think that's a good sign! Can't wait to see you this week!

    Oh my goodness, Brooke. You've done it again.

    That looks so delectably edible.

    Mascarpone cheese. I think that must be the secret to life.

    That sounds awesome. I love marscapone and with rosemary in them? Yum. I'm going to have to try this one too.

    PS. I made cupcakes for the 4th, but they just didn't talk to me the way yours do. They were pretty cute though. I have some freebie printable cupcake wrappers on my blog if you'd like to snag them up.

    I had never tried mascarpone until I made a modified version of your Nie cake (I made vanilla cake, but with the chocolate mascarpone filling). And OH MY GOSH it must be one of the yummiest foods I have tasted. How could I not have known about it before?? Thank you for introducing me! I can't wait to try this blueberry recipe! :D

    I was first lured to your blog because of the Pollyanna cupcakes, but then I made these blueberry cuppies for my baby's 1st birthday party (it was a goldfish theme and I vaguely tried to convince everybody that the blueberries represented bubbles) and people were falling over themselves for seconds. I couldn't believe that anything this sensational could be so easy to make. Thanks for your sharing your culinary genius!

    I’m about to go crazy with your delicious phahogropty here SERIOUSLY! I have never thought of eating peaches this way, but now I’m convinced to give it a try. First need to go peaches. Somehow when I buy peaches, they all go soft at the same time and I have to eat right away. It’s so hard to control . but I have to dip in chocolate this sounds so goooooood!!
