Blackberry Maple Crème Fraîche Cobbler w/ Whipped Maple Mousse
What You'll Need ( Filling ) :

This simple to make, yet complex tasting collaboration of crème fraîche, maple syrup, tart juicy berries, is a perfect blend of tang and sweet creaminess.
If any of these ingredients don’t jive with your dietary needs or expectations, feel free to substitute with whatever flour or sugar you prefer to use. This recipe is quick, easy and delicious.
What You'll Need ( Topping ) :
1 ½ cups of flour
½ cup of sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 stick of softened butter
¼ cup of sliced almonds
What You'll Need ( Mousse ) :
½ cup of crème fraîche
2 tbsp of maple syrup
3 tbsp of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp of whipped cream
Preheat oven to 400° In a large bowl fold ingredients of berry filling together and pour into an ungreased 9x9 baking pan.
Next, combine flour, sugar, butter, salt in a mixing bowl. Mix ingredients together until they form a powdery crumble.
Gently stir almond slices into the crumble mixture.
Spread the crumble topping over the berries, making sure to spread them over the entire layer of berries.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 400°, reduce temperature to 350° and bake for an additional 25 minutes or until top layer is golden brown.
Meanwhile, combine ingredients for mousse, whip with a whisk attachment or by hand until soft fluffy peaks start to form.
Note: If you don’t have whipped cream on hand, no worries, you don’t necessarily need to have it.
Your mousse will be slightly less stiff without it, I didn’t use whipping cream when I made this and it turned out just fine, still very fluffy and mousse-like.
