Picture swirling peaks of fluffy white chocolate mousse cradled in a cookie crust and crowned with bits of macadamia nuts. No, it’s not a dream; it’s my White Chocolate Macadamia Mini Pies.
I love me me some White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies. That may be my favorite cookie flavor. Naturally, I took it upon myself to morph those tasty cookies into pie form. But not just any pie; mini pie, because I don’t want to have to share with anybody. I want this baby all to myself.
These personal pies start with a cookie crust. Literally. It’s the cookie dough from my favorite White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies pressed into a mini pan like a crust and baked. The only change I make is to cut down on some of the sugar and omit the white chocolate chips.
You see, instead of studding the crust with white chocolate chips, I fill it with the most incredible, fluffy white chocolate mousse. I think this is what a cloud in Heaven tastes like. Luscious and creamy, with just the right amount of white chocolate flavor, it’s rich yet light at the same time. This mousse will melt in you mouth. I didn’t even need the cookie crust; I could go to town on the filling alone.
