8 ounces +
1 pound
Gelatin, unflavored powder
1 tablespoon
Cream, heavy
2 cups
Sugar, granulated
½ cup +
2 tablespoons

Lime zest, finely grated

  1. In a food processor, pureé the strawberries until smooth; you should have 1 cup; scrape into a bowl. 
  2. In a small bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over ¼ cup cream; let stand for 5 minutes. 
  3. In a small saucepan, stir ¼ cup cream with ½ cup sugar over moderate heat until the sugar dissolves. 
  4. Whisk in the gelatin mixture until dissolved; remove from heat. 
  5. In a large bowl, combine the mascarpone and vanilla seeds.

  8. Fold in the strawberry pureé. 
  9. In a large bowl, beat the remaining 1 ½ cups cream at medium speed until stiff peaks form. 
  10. Fold the whipped cream into the mousse, and spoon into bowls.
