Dessert #1: Cream cheese Cantuccini with Vinocotto (10 minutes)
Dessert #2: Berries and Cioccolosi
- 8oz of mascarpone cheese
- 3 yolks
- 1 pint of cold heavy whipping cream
- 2 tablespoons of powder sugar
- 3 tablespoon of regular sugar
- Vigne Vecchie Cantuccini (for small glass desserts) or Cantuccione (for bigger glass dessert)
- Vigne Vecchie Vinocotto.
In a mixing bowl, using an hand mixer, mix together the egg yolk and the regular sugar for at least 5 minutes (until is nice and fluffy ). Add the mascarpone cheese and mix all together for another couple minutes until it creates an homogeneous cream.
In a different bowl, whisk together the heavy whipping cream and the powder sugar on high speed until medium to stiff stiff peaks form.
Add , slowly , the whipped cream in the first bowl . Stir the cream using the “ up and down motion” to incorporate air and keep the cream nice and whipped.
YOUR CREAM IS DONE!
In a glass serve the cream with the VV cantuccini and finish with a drizzle of VV vinocotto.
Using the same cream and adding two different ingredients we can use our cioccolosi too!
Dice some fresh strawberries or mix berries. In a glass, layer strawberries, cream and more strawberries. Add the cioccolosi on top and finish with the touch of VV vinocotto. Great for summer and cocktail parties.
