Frozen Peach Mousse Recipe

Step 1

Peel and slice aboout 1 to 1 1/2 lbs. (enough to make 1 cup) of the peaches. Place sliced peaches in food processor, food mill or blender to puree peaches. Refrigerate puree.

Step 2

In top of a double boiler, beat egg yolks with 1/2 c of sugar until thick and lemony in color. Stir in the lemon juice and the peach liqueur. Cook over hot water, stirring constantly, until mixture has thickened, about 4 minutes. Cool to room temp. and fold in peach puree. Chill in refrigerator.

Step 3

In mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add remaining 1/4 c sugar, beating until meringue is stiff. Fold into peach mixture. Spoon peach mousse into 8 custard cups and freeze.

Step 4

Before serving, peel and slice remaining peaches. To serve, unmold frozen mousse onto individual dessert plates and garnish with sliced peaches. Mousse tastes best if allowed to stand and soften 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
