Cream Cheese Sausage Baked Ziti- Perfect Make and Take Meal! + Uncommon Goods Giveaway
This post was sponsored by Uncommon Goods, all opinions are my own.
A few years ago I was given four different gifts from Uncommon Goods for my birthday from four different people. A few things about this are remarkable. First, can you remember one gift your got for your birthday three years ago, let alone four? I remember every one: a set of nesting doll measuring cups, a spice kit, a salts from around the world set, and nesting bowls. I’ve used the spices and salts, re-filled the containers, and I still have the bowls and measuring cups, I use them all the time.
That’s the thing with Uncommon Goods, they are gifts people don’t forget. Unique, memorable, thoughtful, the things people keep for years. The people at Uncommon Goods and I have teamed up to give you a $75 dollar gift card, to make you look like a gift giving genius. I’ve picked out a few of my favorites to share, but it’s up to you to find the perfect gift for your person. Or just get something for yourself, you deserve it.
I pretty much want everything in the Bar & Wine section.
Owl Mugs, SO CUTE!
I NEED this salt block for grilling season.
They have an amazing selection of wine glasses, but I adore these shatterproof wine glasses are must, every time I do dishes it’s like a Jewish wedding in my sink.
How great are these hors d’oeuvres servers?! Skewer all the things!
Salt is a MUST for baked goods, these salts are designed for baking.

Mile High Chocolate Stout Pie
For the crust:
- 2 cups chocolate wafer cookies or 9 chocolate graham crackers (about 1 ½ cups of crumbs)
- 3 tbs sugar
- 5 tbs melted butter
For the chocolate fudge layer:
- 8 wt oz dark chocolate
- 1/3 cup chocolate stout
- 3 tbs heavy cream
For the mousse layer:
- 10 wt oz dark chocolate
- 1/2 cup chocolate stout
- 3 cups heavy cream, chilled
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
For the mascarpone whipped cream:
- 8 wt oz mascarpone cheese, softened
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- 2 cup heavy cream, chilled
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Make the crust:
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Add the wafer cookies (or graham crackers) and sugar to a food processor and process until just crumbs. While the food processor is running add the melted butter and process until well combined. Add to a deep dish 9.5 inch pie pan. Starting with the sides, press into shape. Press the crust very well until even and compacted.
- Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool.
Make the chocolate fudge layer:
- Add the chocolate to a small bowl.
- Heat the stout and cream together until very hot and just starting to steam (microwave or stove top will both work fine). Pour hot liquid over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted and is well combined with the stout and cream. Pour in an even layer in the bottom of the crust. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes.
Make the mousse layer:
- Add the chocolate to a small bowl. Heat the stout until very hot and just starting to steam (microwave or stove top will both work fine). Pour hot beer over the chocolate and stir until the chocolate has melted and is well combined with the stout. Allow to cool to room temperate. In the bowl of a stand mixer add the cream and powdered sugar, building up speed beat on high until medium peaks form. While the mixer is running slowly drizzle the chocolate into the mixer. Once all the chocolate has been added, stop the mixer and remove the bowl. Using a wooden spoon or spatula gently fold until the chocolate and cream have been well combined.
- Add the mousse to the pie crust in an even layer, refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
Make the whipped cream layer:
- In the bowl of a stand mixer beat the mascarpone and powdered sugar until well combined. Add the heavy cream and vanilla, beat on high until medium peaks form. Spread in an even layer on top of the pie. Chill until ready to serve.
weight ounces (wt oz) and fluid ounces (fl oz) are NOT the same. 8 wt oz does not equal one cup (8 fl oz). Chocolate packages are measured by weight, use a kitchen scale to get the most accurate measurements, measuring cups will not help.
