Snowy Mountain

Unbelievable how time flies, isn't it? It feels like Christmas was yesterday and now we are only a few days away from February! We should be entering the coldest part of the year here, but this far the winter has been really mild with temperatures mostly above 0 Centigrade and hardly any snow at all. Even though winter might not traditionally be an ice cream season here thinking of snow made me come up with this simple but tasty dessert that combines mascarpone cheese and ice cream.

Snowy Mountain

This recipe is per person.

2 large scoops vanilla ice cream
2-3 heaping tablespoons mascarpone cheese
1 tablespoon Amaretto liqueur
dried mint for decoration (optional)

1. In a small bowl mix the mascarpone cheese and Amaretto together with a spoon.
2. Pour the mixture on top of the ice cream.
3. Recorate with some dried mint.
4. Yum-yum!! :-)

I actually love ice cream in the winter! Well...I love ice cream all the time. This looks lovely. I recently made ricotta ice cream; i'm excited to try it with mascarpone now!

Alejandra, thank you! I guess this recipe could just as well be made with ricotta. I will try that version, too.

White on rice couple, thanks! It is very easy to make. Please let me know what your guests thought of it, if you serve "Snowy mountain" at your party.
