Preparing an amazing dessert for the Holidays is a must-spending hours in the kitchen to cook is optional:)
One of my closest friends, Ursula, a school principal,loves to cook and entertain, but is always short of time and has therefore created several delicious express recipes.
Her Limoncello dessert is everybody's darling and she was generous enough to share it with us.
As I wanted to try something different this year for the Holidays- no sweet potatoes and no pumpkin had to sacrifice their veggie life for this delicious sweet treat.
It's super easy to prepare, full of flavor and the hint of summer aromas of this syllabub will bring a bit of sunshine to your table during the colder days of the year.
Limoncello, a delightful lemon flavored liquor produced in Southern Italy is the shining star of this dessert.
It is not difficult to find in larger supermarkets and well assorted liqueur stores and I just learned when preparing this post,that Dany de Vito has even his own brand (I don't know if his Limoncello is as good as his acting though :-))
This is what you need:
3/4 cup of Limoncello
the zest 3 organic lemons
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
11/2 cup of Greek Yoghurt
1/2 cup of Mascarpone
1 cup of brown granulated sugar (I run out of it, this is why I used white sugar)
Cut off both ends of the lemon, then grate the zest.
Cut zest into smaller pieces.
Put lemon juice,Limoncello,1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, lemon zest and sugar in the blender and blend until mixture is smooth and creamy.
in an other bowl soften the Mascarpone.
Gently mix Greek yoghurt and the Mascarpone until smooth.
Add the Limoncello mix and stir again until all ingredients have blend in.
Serve in wine or cocktail glasses and sprinkle with crushed Amaretti.
Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
