Mascarpone cheese is absolutely delicious in desserts and as versatile as whipped cream. This recipe is modeled after my tiny tiramisu, but swaps out fruit for the traditional coffee.
- 2 T Grand Marnier
- 16 fresh raspberries or 2 fresh and 14 frozen
- 2 lady finger cookies
- 1/4 c mascarpone
- 1 T milk
- 2 t sugar
- pinch cinnamon
f using frozen raspberries, thaw them first. Then puree the 14 raspberries in a small food processor or blender. Press the puree through a small sieve to eliminate seeds, collecting the pressed liquid into a bowl.
Break lady finger cookies each into 2 pieces and place them in the bottom of a small ramekin.
Spoon raspberry puree over top of the cookies.
Mix the Grand Marnier, milk, and sugar into the mascarpone. Spread over the lady fingers.
Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Top with two fresh raspberries and pinch of cinnamon as decoration.
This recipe works equally well with blackberries or strawberries.
