Easy And Elegant Italian Dessert Recipes
By Christine Steendahl
Italian food definitely has its fans and one of the many yummy types of Italian foods are the desserts. Italian deserts usually come in a wide variety of options from cakes to cookies to delicious desserts that are made for adults with wine and liquors. If you are looking to make an Italian masterpiece for dessert, here are two excellent recipes.
Ingredients to Use:
- 1 pound of mascarpone cheese
- About 40 lady fingers
- 3 cups Italian coffee
- 6 eggs
- ¾ cup of Marsala wine
- 12 tablespoon of sugar
- 4 tablespoon of coca (power form)
Use an electric mixer to mix both the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Save egg whites for use later in the recipe. Add mascarpone cheese and stir it in to this concoction as well. Once these three ingredients are well mixed, now add the 6 egg whites. Add the 4 tablespoons of cocoa and mix it in as well. Once it is all mixed place half of the ingredients into a cake dish.
Dip lady fingers into Italian coffee and then lay them on top of the mascarpone cream. Layer with more contents to create layers. You will want to make about two layers. Once you placed two layers of lady fingers in the cake dish spread with remaining cream. Sprinkle some cocoa powder on the top of the cream. Set the cake dish into the refrigerator for about 24 hours. Enjoy!
If this dessert is made for children, sub the Marsala wine with just the coffee.
Coconut Balls Cookies
For those looking for a great dessert cookie to go with your Italian Coffee or dinner, Coconut ball cookies are exceptionally yummy and very simple to prepare. Below is the recipe.
Ingredients to Use:
- 3 large eggs
- About 3 cups of shredded coconut (packaged is fine)
- 3 cups of graham crackers
- 1.5 cups of sugar
- 1/3 cup of cocoa
To make this yummy Italian dessert recipe, stir together the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Make sure they are well incorporated. Add in your 3 eggs. It is suggested that you add each egg in one at a time and stir well before adding the next in. Now add the 1/3 cup of cocoa, shredded coconut and graham crackers. Before adding the graham crackers make sure they are crushed. Combine all ingredients well and roll them into small balls. Once rolled, refrigerate for about 2 hours before serving. Most people also might want to add a little rum, usually a recipe such as the one above requires about 1 to 3 tablespoons of rum.
