Amaretti Cream

This recipe comes from Mangia Bene Pasta - what can I add after a title like that, except to say this site has some excellent recipes and information. Well worth visiting.

1 tbsp powdered unflavored gelatin
4 tbsp water
7 tbsp sugar
2 cups heavy cream, divided
4 tbsp Amaretto
4 - 5 amaretti cookies

  • Sprinkle the gelatin over 4 tbsps water and allow to soften about 15 minutes.
  • In a saucepan, melt the sugar over low heat until caramel color, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • In another saucepan, heat 1 cup cream to just a simmer. Gradually stir the hot cream into the caramel sugar.
  • Add the amaretto and gelatin. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • Whip 1 cup of remaining cream until stiff. Gently fold it into the caramel mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture into 6 custard cups and refrigerate about 3 hours.
  • Crumble the amaretti cookies in a food processor.
  • Sprinkle the top of the custard with the crumbs and serve.
