Mascarpone parfait

with strawberries

- Ingredients -
(Serves 4)

  • > 250 g Hacendado mascarpone cheese 
  • > 50 g icing sugar 
  • > 2 egg yolks 
  • > 400 g strawberries 
  • > 3 tbsp. sugar 
  • > Water 
  • > 8 biscuits

- Directions -

  1. Whisk the egg whites together with the icing sugar until stiff. 
  2. Fold in the Hacendado mascarpone cheese using a gentle figure of eight movement. Set aside in the fridge. 
  3. Dice the strawberries (set 4 aside for decoration). 
  4. In a pan, add 3 tbsp. sugar and a little water, just enough to wet the sugar. Heat. 
  5. When the caramel has formed, without letting it darken, add the diced strawberries and cook on a medium heat for a few minutes (without letting the fruit completely break up). Leave to rest so it cools down a little. 
  6. Meanwhile, crush the biscuits. 
  7. Arrange in cups, glasses or bowls: a layer of mascarpone cream, a layer of crushed biscuits, a layer of strawberry sauce, and another of mascarpone cream. 
  8. Decorate each cup with a sliced strawberry. 
  9. Leave to chill for at least 3 hours before serving.
