Fig raspberry mascarpone desserts

I was impatiently waiting for the peak fig season to make these little desserts that I had in mind for a while. I already knew that fig goes wonderfully with raspberry; It remained to find a final association but one which would not take over the fruit flavors. So I went with a mascarpone mousse full of lightness.

These little desserts are therefore composed of a sweet muscovado dough, a super soft almond and raspberry biscuit, a mascarpone mousse and a fig and raspberry compote. For the decoration, I opted for a white chocolate velvet flock, a half circle of sweet pastry, the remaining mascarpone mousse and a slice of fresh fig.

To make these really super light little desserts, I advise you to start two days in advance, if only to make the sweet dough, the compote and of course the assembly. Your desserts must be perfectly frozen to be able to make the flocking.

With this recipe, I also wanted to reuse my flocking paint gun ^^" which I bought some time ago. To briefly explain, the idea is to melt a quantity of chocolate white with a quantity of cocoa butter. The mixture must then be used while hot, around 45-50°C. Then transfer this mixture into a container smaller than the main container (otherwise you risk not having enough). Then place yourself in a well-protected place. Until recently I used my dishwasher to do this, but you have to admit, to clean it afterwards you will need several wash cycles... So not ideal. I prefer to use a large cardboard box in which I place my small desserts and that way it's perfect. Then, you just have to activate the gun. I put the power to its maximum and I it gradually. The desserts must be placed at least 20-30 cm from the gun otherwise you will end up with not very pretty marks. Go there gradually and rotating the dish.

Flavor-wise, we loved the marriage of these three flavors and the textures too. The mascarpone mousse brings a real lightness to the dessert, the compote adds tanginess and fruitiness above all; we obtain this regressive side with the soft almond and raspberry biscuit and the crunchiness with the sweet muscovado dough. These little desserts are really not complicated to make, you just need to follow each step and above all take your time! Don't hesitate to give me your feedback if you have tested them :)
