Raspberries with mascarpone cream
Or how a few raspberries and a bit of mascarpone can save the day!
Let’s say you find out on Christmas day that you forgot to think about a dessert… You can do two things; get some ready made chocolate mousse from the supermarket or you can make this delicious and superquick dessert with raspberries, mascarpone and crispy lady fingers instead. And really it costs you virtually no time whatsoever… It’s a golden oldie for me (as you can tell by the watermark of 2008) but I didn’t want to keep it from you!
- 250 gr mascarpone
- Sugar to taste
- Amaretti cookies
- ladyfingers for the bottoms
- 125-200 gr of raspberries
- icing sugar for dusting
Put your mascarpone in a bowl and ad a little bit of sugar. It doesn't need a lot but ad whatever you think it sweet enough.
If you like it you can add a bit of lemonzest and/or lemonjuice as well to break a bit of the fattiness of the mascarpone.
Find a pretty glass to serve the dessert in. I used a wide whiskey glass. Having the width helps in putting the ingredients in.. 😉
Put the ladyfingers in the bottom of the glass and break them where needed so you have a layer of sorts
Crumble some of the amaretti cookies and stir this through the mascarpone. Take half of the raspberries and puree this with a fork. Stir through the mascarpone but don't be too thorough here as you want to have a swirl effect in there
Put half of the mascarpone in the glass on top of the ladyfingers. Depending on the size of your glass you can add another layer on top (ladyfingers first/mascarpone next)
Put some pretty raspberries on top of the last layer of mascarpone and sprinkle with some icing sugar.
