    Directions

    1. Special Equipment: spatula; rimmed baking sheet; baking rack; pastry brush; thermometer; fine-mesh strainer
    2. For the goat cheese mousse: In a medium mixing bowl, add 2 1/4 cups goat cheese, ⅓ cup of the heavy cream, rosemary, lemon zest, and black pepper. Fit the KitchenAid® 7-Speed Hand Mixer with the turbo beater attachments. Place the beaters into the goat cheese mixture and turn to speed 2. Mix until just combined, then gradually increase to speed 4 and cream for 2 minutes, or until the goat cheese is light and creamy. Use a spatula to scrape down the bowl and beaters as needed during the mixing process. Once the mixture is creamy, turn off the mixer and remove the turbo beaters.
    3. In a medium mixing bowl, add the remaining ¾ cup heavy cream. Fit the hand mixer with the whisk attachment. Place the whisk into the cream and turn to speed 4. Whip until the cream begins to thicken, about 1 minute, then increase to speed 7 and whip until soft peaks form, another 35-45 seconds. Turn off the mixer.
