I’ve always admired Ben and Jerry’s clever ice cream names and came up with a creative one for my recipe today – Top Tier-amisu Ice Cream Sundaes! I know, I know, I shouldn’t quit my day job, haha.
I’ve become more addicted to lattes since having Greta and recently tried coffee ice cream for the first time. It was quite tasty, but I wanted something more, so I made these indulgent adult ice cream sundaes. I started with a couple scoops of coffee ice cream and then added some airy lady fingers (I found mine at Trader Joe’s, of course), decadent mascarpone whipped cream, and a dusting of cocoa powder on top. Ah, these totally hit the spot.
Oh, and mascarpone is going to be my secret ingredient in whipped cream from now on – it thickens the whipped cream beautifully and adds a richness that is hard to beat.
Tiramisu Ice Cream Sundaes
Mascarpone Whipped Cream:
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For Sundae Assembly:
12 small scoops of coffee ice cream
24 ladyfinger cookies
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
To make the mascarpone whipped cream, place mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract in a well-chilled bowl and whisk on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 3 to 4 minutes.
To assemble the sundaes, scoop ice cream evenly into 6 bowls. Place four ladyfingers in each bowl and top evenly with mascarpone whipped cream. Sprinkle cocoa powder on top. Makes 6 sundaes.
