Ingredients

3 eggs, separated

2 ounces sugar

One 8-ounce container mascarpone

Salt

1 1/2 cups roughly crumbled amaretti cookies

1 shot brandy

Cocoa powder

Shaved dark chocolate, for garnish

Fresh seasonal berries, for garnish

Fresh mint, for garnish

Directions

  1. Mix the egg yolks with half the sugar until you obtain a creamy light mixture. Work the mascarpone in a separate bowl using a wooden spoon, making sure you eliminate any lumps, then add to the eggs and continue to mix well.
  2. In another bowl, mix the egg whites with a pinch of salt and the remaining sugar until they reach a somewhat firm peak, and then fold them into the mascarpone.
  3. Add the cookies to a medium bowl and stir in the brandy (just until moistened, you don't want them soggy). Add a dash of cocoa powder. Divide the cookie crumbles into the bottom of 6 glasses.
  4. Add the mascarpone cream to a pastry bag and pipe the cream into each glass. Top with a sprinkle of cocoa powder and shaved dark chocolate. Garnish with a few berries and a sprig of mint.
