“While this dish does not require baking, it does use eggs. If you are uncomfortable with the raw eggs, perhaps there are substitutes for the egg yolks and the whites. If you like Amaretti cookies, amaretto and mascarpone cheese, you will like this dish. Prep time does not include refrigeration time.”

Directions

  1. Place the Amaretti crumbs in a bowl, add the Amaretto and set aside to soak. Meanwhile, beat the egg yolks with the superfine sugar until pale and thick. Fold in the mascarpone cheese and soaked cookie crumbs.
  2. Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff, then gently fold into the cheese mixture. Divide the mascarpone cream among 4 serving dishes and let chill for 1-2 hours. Sprinkle with toasted slivered almonds just before serving.
