Ingredients

  • 1 tub mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 sugar
  • 1 tsp. amaretto (optional)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  1. Using a hand-mixer or stand-up mixer with the whisk attachment, on medium speed, blend together the mascarpone cheese, 1/2 of the sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the amaretto at this point if you choose to use it. Set aside in another bowl.
  2. In a mixing bowl add the heavy whipping cream and the remaining sugar and blend on high speed just until stiff peaks form, about a minute or two.
  3. Turn the mixer off and carefully fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture.
  4. Slice the panettone or Colombo bread into 1″ slices, then into 1″ cubes.
  5. Slice the peaches.
  6. Begin to layer the parfaits with the cubes of bread/cake first.
  7. Then spoon on a layer of the mascarpone cream.
  8. Then place a layer of sliced peaches on top of the cream.
  9. Continue until 2 or 3 layers are completed.
  10. Garnish with an Italian amaretti cookie, a sprig of mint, and a raspberry.
  11. ENJOY!  Buon Appetito!
