Want a delicious and elegant dessert you can whip up in under 10 minutes? Well here it is – No Bake Strawberry Mascarpone Dessert Cup! You only need a knife and a spoon to make it!
No special tools required… you don’t even have to get you mixer out!
Fruit, liqueur, mascarpone, a hint of sugar and crushed biscuits…that’s it! And it is delicious. This according to my overnight guests who had it for breakfast the next morning! (Okay..so I forgot to serve it at dinner!)
You can make it a few hours ahead. It is so fast to do you could even slice the strawberries and let them macerate in the liqueur and then assemble just before serving if you want to keep the amaretti crunchy.
- Don’t assemble this more than 4 hours ahead or the cookie crumbs will get soggy. You can make the components the day ahead and assemble just before serving. Slice the fruit and macerate overnight. Combine the mascarpone mixture the day before and crush the biscuits and store overnight in an airtight container.
- This is so versatile-you can use any fruit in season and pick complementary liqueur and biscuits. For example use raspberries, amaretto liqueur and shortbread or amaretti biscuits. Or peaches and amaretto liqueur and biscuit of you choice. Banana, Bailey’s and chocolate wafers would also be good. Use your imagination and let your taste guide you.
You can make this fancy by serving in a fancy wineglass or dessert cup. Or..homestyle in small bowls.
Wouldn’t this make an awesome no fuss addition to a picnic or patio dinner? It is also perfect for Valentine’s Day because you can enjoy a special meal without beingstuck in the kitchen.
