Want to make an easy dessert that will WOW your friends and family? Well, there are no better desserts than these two amazing creations from The Gage Restaurant. Here’s Peach Cheesecake Mousse and a Blueberry Fool recipe everyone will love. They’re simple and elegant and you’ll want to serve them at your next party, holiday dinner — or just because.
While attending the No Kid Hungry event here in Chicago, I came upon two extraordinary desserts presented by The Gage Restaurant in Chicago… one of my favorite restaurants here in The Windy City. At the event, they presented two desserts: Peach Cheese Cake Mouse & Blueberry Fool and I had to have the recipes. So, I called them and they gave it to me. And now… I’m thrilled to share Chef Kym’s recipe with all of you.
If peaches are out of season, you can use frozen so, you can enjoy all year round. BTW, I’m also including my easy Instant Pot recipe for a peach compote, which has ZERO WW Smart Points.
Oh. and these cute little jars? Yes, they are a must have! They are 4 oz mini glass jars — with lids. Great for all single-serve needs and really easy for buffets and parties. They can be used for so many things… serving jams and jellies, condiments like relish, or mustard and ketchup, salad dressings and more. LOVE them.
