Double-Chocolate Mascarpone Raspberry Pie
Ingredients
1
recipe Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie
1
8 ounce carton mascarpone cheese
6
ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/2
2
tablespoons raspberry liqueur
1
cup whipping cream
2
cups fresh raspberries
1/3
cup seedless raspberry jam, melted and cooled slightly
1
recipe White Chocolate Topping (optional)
 
Semisweet chocolate shavings (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Prepare Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten pastry. Roll pastry from center to edges into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Wrap pastry circle around the rolling pin. Unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate without stretching it. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry even with the plates edge. Crimp edge as desired. Generously prick bottom and sides of pastry with a fork. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake for 8 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes more or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan combine mascarpone cheese, bittersweet chocolate, and powdered sugar. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in liqueur. Cool to room temperature.
  3. In a chilled medium mixing bowl beat whipping cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl). Stir about 1/2 cup of the whipped cream into chocolate mixture to lighten. Fold in the remaining whipped cream just until combined. Spoon chocolate mixture into pastry shell, spreading evenly. Cover and chill for 3 to 24 hours.
  4. To serve, in a medium bowl gently stir together raspberries and melted jam; spoon over chocolate mixture. If desired, garnish with White Chocolate Topping and semisweet chocolate shavings.
