Nice cool dessert for the summer.
I used stemless martini glasses for individual servings. The recipe can also be prepared in a trifle bowl or casserole.
1/2 cup Limoncello
1/2 cup water
2 t sugar
3 eggs separated
1 2/3 cups heavy cream
1 tub Mascarpone
Press the lemons onto a cutting board and slowly roll with your fingers. This will help extract more juice.
In a saucepan, mix Limoncello, juice from 2 lemons, 2 T sugar and water bring to a boil. Stir to dissolve the sugar then pour into a bowl and chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
In an electric mixer with whip attachment combine egg yolks, 1/2 cup sugar & lemon zest from 1 lemon, beat on high until fluffy. Slowly add 1 cup heavy cream and Mascarpone and mix to smooth consistency then transfer to a larger ss bowl.
Clean & dry mixer bowl and return it to mixer. Add egg whites beat to light peaks. Fold into egg Mascarpone mixture and chill.
Break a couple of lady fingers to 1” cubes and place into bottom of martini glass. Place some of the Limoncello syrup into a shallow bowl or plate. Dip full size lady fingers in quickly & place into the martini glasses.
