  • 3/4 cup whole / whipping cream (cold from the fridge) (180 grams)
  • 3/4 cup mascarpone (room temperature)* (175 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon icing / powdered sugar


  • 6-8 lady fingers
  • 3-4 tablespoons strong coffee
  • 1-2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa

*Remove from the fridge 30-45 minutes before preparing.



    • In a medium bowl add the cream, mascarpone and powdered sugar, beat on medium / high speed until thickened and creamy. Place in a pastry bag with a large round pastry tip.
    • Either dip the Lady Fingers one at a time in a flat bowl containing the coffee or place 3-4 lady fingers (depending on size of cookies) on a plate and spoon the coffee over the cookies.
    • Form a heart with the mascarpone filling on the coffee soaked lady fingers. Refrigerate at least 3 hours (can also be made the day before). Sprinkle with cocoa before serving. Decorate with chocolate dipped strawberries if desired. Enjoy!
