1 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions

For the pastry crust, Combine the flour, salt, and sugar in a large bowl and stir briefly.

Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles pea sized crumbs.

Add in 4 tablespoons of the ice water and mix just until the dough comes together.

Shape the dough into a flat disk, cover it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Roll out dough on a well floured surface to a 10 inch circle, gently move the crust to a pie plate.

Line the pastry with parchment paper; fill with pie weights or dried beans.

Bake 15 minutes.

Remove the parchment paper and weights, and continue to bake just until the pastry turns a light golden color 5-10 minutes.

For the mosse, Pour water into a small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over top and set aside for 5 minutes.

Puree raspberries in a food processor.

Pour puree into a fine mesh strainer set over a bowl. Press on the solids to get as much juice out of the puree as possible. Discard solids.

Pour raspberry juice into a small saucepan. Add sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat.

Continue to boil, stirring often until the juice reduces to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and add the gelatin. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved.

Put chopped white chocolate into a large bowl. Pour hot juice over chocolate. Allow to sit for 3 minutes. Stir until melted and smooth.

Using an electric mixer, beat cream until soft peaks form.

Pour into the crust. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

Just before serving, whip the cream and sugar until stiff peaks form. Spoon for topping to serve.
