Taste and Occasion
Fancy a special Easter dessert that's still super simple and quick to prepare? Then this eggnog layered dessert is just right. You only need 6 ingredients and just 10 minutes. Ready is a great Easter dessert in a glass, guaranteed to hit the spot!
Layered desserts are always a great thing - uncomplicated and still a visual treat. You may already know my classic tiramisu. The heavenly dessert with eggnog is made for the days around Easter. The quick eggnog cream with mascarpone is lush but does not seem too "heavy". This is because I sweetened it only slightly and added lean quark to the mixture. You can dose the amount of alcohol according to desire and mood. We like the Easter dessert in the glass rather a little more subtle. If children should also eat, you will find in the recipe also an alternative for an Easter dessert without alcohol. Either way, the mix of soft cream, still slightly crunchy chocolate cookies, and a pretty decoration of chocolate shavings and Easter treats is excellent!
The base of this Easter dessert recipe is a cream made of mascarpone, curd, and cream. Here, however, without raw eggs, the dessert in a glass with eggnog can well be prepared the day before. Add a little powdered sugar and/or vanilla sugar to the cream. To make a layered eggnog dessert, you will also need crumbled cookies.
Here is actually everything suitable that you particularly like or just have at home. Whether homemade or purchased cookies, whether Amarettini, Cantuccini, ladyfingers, butter cookies or even chocolate cookies.
How to make the Eggnog Dessert
Let's start: Coarsely crumble or chop the cookies and whip the cream until semi-stiff. Mix the curd with the egg liqueur and powdered sugar until smooth, then briefly stir in the mascarpone. Finally, carefully fold in the cream. Then, spread half of the cookie crumbs on the bottom of 4 glasses (approx. 200-220 ml volume). After this, pour some eggnog on the cookie layer and half of the cream. Then add a second layer of cookie crumbs, liqueur, and cream.
Refrigerate the dessert until ready to eat and allow it to infuse. Before serving, decorate with chocolate shavings, Easter eggs, or sugared almonds.
There are also many options for decorating the quick eggnog cream. How about cookie crumbs and small chocolate eggs? Or chocolate shavings and glazed almonds? Or everything at once 😉 ?
