READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Preheat oven to 400. Butter a 6 cup souffle dish and sprinkle with a little of the superfine sugar.
  • Put the cookies in a bowl. Sprinkle them with 2 tbsp of the Amaretto Liqueur, and set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix together the 4 egg yolks, 2 tbsp sugar and the flour.
  • Heat the milk just to a boil in a heavy saucepan. gradually add the hot milk to the egg mixture, stirring.
  • Pour the mixture back into the pan. Set over low heat and simmer gently for 3-4 minutes, or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the remaining Amaretto liqueur. Remove from heat.
  • In an extremely clean, grease-free bowl, whisk the 5 egg whites until they hold soft peaks (if not using a copper bowl, add the cream of tartar as soon as the whites are frothy). Add the remaining sugar and continue whisking until stiff.
  • Add about one quarter of the whites to the liqueur mixture and stir in with a rubber spatula. Add the remaining whites and fold in gently.
  • Spoon half the mixture into the prepared souffle dish. Cover with a layer of the moistened cookies, then spoon the reaming souffle mixture on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the souffle is risen and lightly browned. Sprinkle with sifted confectioners' sugar and serve immediately.
