    Serves: 2 

    • 150ml fresh cream
    • 2 egg yolks
    • 2 tablespoons sugar

    Prep:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Beat the cream with an electric mixer. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar into a creamy consistency. Add the mascarpone and half of the whipped cream and stir it well in.
    2. Whiz half of the strawberries and turn them into a puree. Chop the remaining ones into pieces. Mix the limoncello with a couple of glasses of orange juice.
    3. Now you can start assembling the dessert by putting some chopped strawberries on the bottom of two glasses. Chop the biscuits into halves and dip them into the mixture of juice and limoncello. Lay them on top of the strawberries and pour some of the eggs and mascarpone mixture on them. Then make another layer with strawberries, biscuits and mascarpone mixture.
    4. Finish with some whipped cream (you can use a piping bag to make a nice decoration), decorate with some strawberries and pour all over the strawberry puree.
