Directions

Step 1

Cream butter and sugar together. Stir in egg yolks, adding one at a time.

Step 2

Sift together flour, cocoa and salt and add to butter. Mix until dough just comes together. Shape into a disc and chill until ready to roll. If preparing ahead of time, pull dough from fridge an hour before rolling.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Step 4

On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to just over 1/4-inch thick. Cut dough using cutters of your choice. Lift cookies gently onto a parchment-lined baking sheet carefully (they’re fragile) and bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool.

Step 5

Melt chocolate with water, directly on low heat, stirring until smooth and shiny. Remove from heat and stir in butter and sour cream until melted.

Step 6

Stir in egg yolks, one at a time, mixing gently and slowly.

Step 7

Whip whites with salt to soft peaks, adding sugar once whites become foamy. Fold into chocolate mixture in thirds.

Step 8

Pour into a serving dish.

Step 9

Chill mousse for at least 3 hours before serving.
