Berry Terrine with Raspberry Sauce
White Chocolate Mousse
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
7 ounces white chocolate squares
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon Chambord or raspberry liqueur
2 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced

Make White Chocolate Mousse: Line a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap. Sprinkle

on High 40 seconds; stir 2 minutes, until gelatin completely dissolves. Cool slightly.
Bring medium saucepan halfway full with water to a simmer. Meanwhile, place chocolate
in medium microwave-proof bowl. Microwave on High 1 to 2 minutes; stir until smooth.
Combine sugar, eggs, egg yolk and liqueur in medium stainless steel bowl. Place
bowl over simmering water, and beat with handheld mixer until mixture doubles in
volume, 5 minutes. Beat in dissolved gelatin. Remove from heat; fold in melted chocolate.
Cool to room temperature. Beat cream in mixer bowl to soft peaks; gently fold into
white chocolate mixture.
Arrange half of strawberries in one layer in bottom of prepared pan; Spread top
with one third of mousse. Arrange a layer of blackberries on top, then spread with
another third of mousse. Top with raspberries, then remaining mousse and strawberries.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Uncover mousse. Place a serving plate over top of pan. Holding bottom of pan
and plate, invert and remove pan. Peel off wrap. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired,
and serve with Raspberry Sauce.
Raspberry Sauce: Bring raspberries to a boil in small saucepan; reduce heat and
simmer 5 minutes. Transfer to food processor and puree. Strain through fine sieve
into bowl. (Can be made ahead. Cover and refrigerate overnight.)
