Engagement Ring Parfait
By Deen Brothers
- Prep time: 10 min
- Servings: 2
- 1 1/4 cups hulled and sliced strawberries
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 4 ounces mascarpone half of an 8-ounce container
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup finely crumbled almond biscotti
In a medium bowl, toss the strawberries, 1 tablespoon sugar and the lemon juice until the sugar dissolves. Let sit out at room temperature while you prep the remaining ingredients.
Add the mascarpone to a large bowl. Beat with a hand-held mixer until soft and loose. Add the heavy cream, the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and the vanilla and whip until you reach soft peaks.
Add a layer of crumbled biscotti to the bottom of two 12-ounce martini glasses (or any other decorative glass). Top with a layer of whipped mascarpone, and then a layer of strawberries. Repeat the layering. Sprinkle with the remaining crumbled biscotti.
Cook’s Note: You can make up to 3 hours ahead of time and store in the refrigerator, or serve right away.
