This is such a simple, no cook, dessert that is good enough for a dinner party. It is quite rich, but the lemon adds a nice freshness to it and it is not too sweet. If you can find it you can use low fat mascarpone.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb mascarpone (500gr)
  • 11 ounces low-fat yogurt (300gr)
  • 12 cup sugar (100gr)
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • 17 fluid ounces whipping cream, whipped (400gr)
  • 7 ounces amaretti (200gr)
  • 4 tablespoons Amaretto
  • cocoa, for dusting (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix the mascarpone, yoghurt, sugar & lemon juice, using an electric mixer, until well combined.
  2. Fold in the whipped cream.
  3. Place the amaretti biscuits in a zip lock and bash or roll with a rolling pin until broken up.
  4. Mix the broken up amaretti biscuits with the amaretto liqueur and fold into the cream mix.
  5. Place in a large serving bowl, dust with cocoa and garnish with whole amaretti buiscuits.
  6. Alternatively you can divide it into 8-10 single servings in a pretty glass (martini glas for example), dust it with cocoa and garnish with amaretti biscuits.
  7. If you don't serve it immidiately, refridgerate.

This is such an ELEGANT dessert! I love the texture of the amaretti biscuts in the cream. I served this in tall champagne flutes. I'm going to have this for dessert the next time we have company. Thanks for posting.
