Equipment

  • 2 mixing bowls
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 silicon spatula
  • 6 serving glasses
  • 1 hand mixer

Ingredients
  

  • 2 eggs
  • cup powdered sugar (40 g)
  • 8 oz mascarpone (226 g)
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • speculoos cookies (crushed or whole for garnish)
  • 1 lb strawberries (hulled and sliced)

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the Mascarpone Cream: Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Reserve the whites in a large bowl. In a mixing bowl, whisk the yolks and the powdered sugar until the mixture turns white. Then add the vanilla and the mascarpone. Mix well until you obtain a very smooth mixture.
  • Finish the Mascarpone Cream: beat the egg whites with a hand mixer until stiff, add the tsp of powdered sugar before the whites are firm. Add the whites to the mascarpone mixture with a silicone spatula. Add and mix gently.
  • Prepare the speculoos: Crush the speculoos (no need for a blender, just a freezer bag and a rolling pin). Keep a whole speculoos for each verrine for presentation.
  • Assemble the Dessert: to assemble, in serving glasses or bowls, layer the mascarpone cream with crushed speculoos and sliced strawberries. Make 2 layers but do not sprinkel speculos on top (you will do it just before serving to keep them crunchy).
  • Chill the Mascarpone Cream: place the mascarpone cream in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow it to firm up slightly.
  • Serve the Dessert: Sprinkle crushed Speculoos cookies and one whole speculoos on top of the mascarpone and strawberries just before serving. The spiced flavor of Speculoos adds a delightful crunch to each bite.

Notes

  • Customize the sweetness level by adjusting the amount of powdered sugar.
  • Replace strawberries with raspberries or other fruit like mango or peach.
