    Manami's Note:

    This mousse is in the cookbook "Barefoot Contessa At Home" by Ina Garten. Have not tasted this as yet, but from the way it reads, and since it is a Barefoot Contessa recipe, I am 100% sold. Wonderful for a holiday dessert, that is not the usual pumpkin or pecan pie. Cooking time is cooling time - overnight.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the rum in a heat-proof bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over it.
    2. 2
      Set aside for 10 minutes for the gelatin to soften.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg yolks, orange zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
    4. 4
      Set the bowl of gelatin over a pan of simmering water and cook until the gelatin is clear.
    5. 5
      Immediately, whisk the hot gelatin mixture into the pumpkin mixture.
    6. 6
      In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the heavy cream and vanilla on high speed until soft peaks form.
    7. 7
      Fold the whipped cream into the pumpkin mixture.
    8. 8
      To assemble, spoon some of the pumpkin mixture into parfait glasses, add a layer of whipped cream, then some chopped spicy ginger cookies. Repeat ending with a third layer of pumpkin.
    9. 9
      Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
    10. 10
      To serve: decorate with whipped cream and slivered crystallized ginger.
    11. 11
      *This is the final recipe of the dinner meal I have been posting, with roast capon, buttermilk mashed potatoes, green beans with shallots, and orange-honey glazed carrots. This is what the Barefoot Contessa served - it is a lovely combination of different flavors.

      I made mini parfaits for a Thanksgiving open house this year. The mousse was delicious. I added 2 ozs of cream cheese and a Tbsp of plain yogurt to the sweetened whipped cream so it wouldn't separate. The one thing I did not like about this recipe was the pre-assembly. The cookie crumbs get mushy. It was much better a few days later, when I assembled more parfaits with the leftover mousse and fresh cookie crumbs which I served right away. I will make this again, but I'll allow the mousse to set in a big bowl and then build the parfaits right before serving. PS I was out of rum and just used water - still tasty!
