Cherimoya Mousse
by Christina Pettersen

Curd
6 tbsp butter
4 tbsp sugar
3 egg yolks
1/2 C cherimoya puree

Combine all ingredients in a double boiler and cook until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Strain through a sieve and cool.
Beat curd until light.

Creme
1 C heavy whipping cream, reserving 2 tablespoons for gelatin
1 envelope gelatin + 2 tbsp water

Mix gelatin with 2 tablespoons water to soften, for a few minutes. Heat gelatin in a sauté pan with reserved cream, stirring until gelatin is dissolved. Cool

Whip heavy cream to soft peaks. Mix cooled, dissolved gelatin into whipped cream and continue to beat to firm peaks.

To Serve
Fold whipped cherimoya curd into whipped cream.
Chill until served.

Optional: Garnish with candied figs.
