3 hour, 15 mins
Total cook time
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 2 cups cold brew coffee
- 24-28 lady finger cookies
- cocoa powder
With a stand or hand mixer, beat whipping cream, sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form. Add in mascarpone cheese and almond extract and continue mixing until stiff peaks are formed.
Break lady fingers into 3 to 4 pieces and dip in coffee. Place in jars for the first layer. Use the back of a spoon to create a solid layer. Spread half of the whipped cream mixture on top of the lady fingers. Repeat process with second layer of lady fingers and cream mixture.
Dust the top of dessert with cocoa powder. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours, up to overnight.
Step 4 :: Helpful Hints
Don't soak the lady fingers in the coffee, as they will fall apart. Just a quick dunk in the coffee is enough.
Step 5 :: Helpful Hints
A tablespoon of Amaretto can be used in place of almond extract.
Step 6 :: Helpful Hints
To easily layer the whipping cream layer, pipe into jars using a pastry bag. Or, load into a zip top bag, and cut off one of the end corners to create an easy, disposable pastry bag.
