MASCARPONE CREAMS

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 5
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • Mascarpone Creams
  • 4 oz amaretto cookies crushed
  • 4 Tbsp amaretto or maraschino
  • 4 eggs separated
  • Generous ¼ cup superfine sugar
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • Toasted slivered almonds to decorate

Directions

  • Place the cookie crumbs in a bowl, add the amaretto or Maraschino, and set aside to soak.
  • Meanwhile, beat the egg yolks with superfine sugar until pale and thick. Fold in the mascarpone and soaked cookie crumbs.

  • Divide the mascarpone cream among serving dishes and let chill for 1-2 hours. Sprinkle with toasted slivered almonds just before serving.

Notes

I found this in an Italian cookbook I picked up at a discounted book store. I made this for my daughter and her husband after Christmas and it is really delicious. Make sure you use pasterized eggs.
