Summer to me is best represented by fresh berries. Raspberries are one of my favorites. As a pastry chef, I love the combination of raspberry with white chocolate. The tartness of the raspberry blended with sweet white chocolate is perfection in one bite. Bon appetit!

★ TIP ★
There are several steps to this recipe, but taken one at a time, makes it much easier. This is how I approach the recipe: Make the raspberry confit, raspberry glaze, and vegan sables first (Day 1). Make the vegan raspberry-white chocolate mousse on Day 2. Then on Day 3, all that is left to do is glazing.
Pro Tip: Adding raspberry powder to your dessert adds extra flavor without added moisture or calories. If you prefer not to glaze, you could dust the mousse with raspberry powder.
Step 1. Raspberry Confit
1/4 tsp Agar Agar powder
1 cup Raspberry puree
2 ½ Tbsp Vegan granulated sugar
2 tsp Cornstarch
Add puree to a 2-quart saucepan set on medium heat over a stovetop.
Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and Agar Agar in a separate small bowl until combined. Then add to the warm puree.
Boil the mixture for 1-2min, whisking constantly.
Immediately pour hot raspberry confit into desired molds, and freeze overnight.
Remove from mold, place in a container, keep frozen until ready to use.
Step 2. Raspberry Glaze
1/2 tsp Water
1 Tbsp Dextrose powder
1 Tbsp Fresh lemon juice
1 Raspberry puree
1/4 cup Liquid glucose or corn syrup
2¼ tsp Pectin NH
Combine raspberry puree and water together in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisking gently, heat to 104℉
Remove from heat and add the liquid glucose.
In a separate bowl, combine the dextrose powder, pectin NH; then add to the warm puree mixture. Return to stovetop and bring to
