  • ½ pound raspberries

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar, divided

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ¼ cup amaretto liqueur

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

  • 1 (8 ounce) container mascarpone cheese

  • 1 cup crushed amaretti

  • 4 whole amaretti cookies


  1. Reserve 6 raspberries for garnish. Place remaining raspberries in a saucepan and add 2 tablespoons sugar, water, and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer over low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until raspberries break down, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain through a fine mesh sieve set over a bowl to remove seeds and reserve raspberry sauce.

  2. Combine amaretto liqueur, heavy cream, and remaining sugar in a mixing bowl. Whip until soft peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese and blend thoroughly.

  3. Place 1 or 2 tablespoons crushed amaretti in the bottom of a serving glass. Add whipped mascarpone mixture and a layer of raspberry sauce. Repeat layers and top with 1 reserved raspberry and 1 whole amaretti cookie. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
