I love dessert shooters… they can satisfy after a large meal or be part of a dessert buffet where guests can graze… indulging their sweet tooth over an array of sweet treats…. so I love making up all kinds of combinations… and Peaches and Mascarpone Cream is one of them.
Most people put berries with mascarpone… peaches add a different take on the dessert and I promise you … you won’t be disappointed.
Make sure the mascarpone cheese is softened… you can soften it quickly in the microwave … about 10-15 seconds should do the trick… be careful… microwave ovens vary… keep an eye on it.
Desert shooter glasses are tough to come by… in my opinion… 5 oz. is the perfect size. You can find them in party stores or online. You want either 5 oz. glass or clear hard plastic tumblers. The plastic ones are easier to find and perfect for parties.
I know mascarpone can be expensive, but it is worth every penny.
I use Amaretto in the recipe.. if you want it alcohol free, you can substitute almond extract… start with a teaspoon and adjust to your taste…
I used homemade sugar cookies because it’s what I had… store bought will work fine too…
I used 1 ½ cookies, crumbled, per shooter. I used about 2 tablespoons mascarpone cream and about 2 tablespoons of peach mixture for each.
This recipe should make about 6 shooters.
Try this delicious dessert!
