So elegant...so grown-up...and thankfully so easy! Apricots (fresh or dried) also pair very well with the mousse if you'd rather not make the tuile cookies.

1 pint cream
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon gelatin powder, unsweetened ( softened in 2 Tbl. cold water )
1/2 pound white chocolate ( chopped )
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup corn syrups, light
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
12 tablespoons unsalted butter ( melted )
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 cup gingersnaps ( crushed )


For the mousse: Bring half of the cream to a boil, and then remove from heat. Add the gelatin and stir until it has completely dissolved. Place the chocolate and powdered ginger in a large bowl and pour the hot liquid over it. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Cool the mixture until it begins to thicken. Whip the remaining cream to soft peaks and fold in. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Once chilled and firm, pipe into cooled tuile cookies and serve immediately.

For the tuile cookies: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.In a mixer with a whisk attachment, combine the salt, brown sugar, and corn syrup. Add the flour, butter, and vanilla extract, and mix well. Add the crushed ginger snaps and mix just to combine. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop large teaspoonfuls of batter onto the parchment paper, leaving plenty of room between them as the cookies will spread out as they bake to about 4-inches in diameter. Bake until the edges are browned, about 8 to 10 minutes. When done, the cookies will be bubbly and flat. Once the tuiles are baked, and while still hot but cool enough to hold together, individually peel the cookies off the parchment paper, and drape them over a rolling pin covered with parchment paper and leave them to cool. Repeat until all the cookie batter is used up. When cool, store carefully in an airtight container.
