The last part of the Christmas Feast! In my opinion, we saved the best for last. This one is just so good! Could not stop eating and can’t wait to make it again! Remember, this is a three meal course, here you can find the first course and main course.
Anne’s Kitchen Stories: Christmas Feast Part Three
It’s the perfect fresh dessert after a warming Christmas meal. You can prep this the day before if you want, or just before you start cooking since it has to set for an hour. I have to admit that Anna and I cheated a little bit while taking photo’s for this dessert. We wanted to make multiple layers cause that looks amazing. Originally, this dessert is meant to be a tiramisu and is a bit more balanced if you stick to one layer. Here is what you need for 4 servings of this amazing mango tiramisu.
– 12 lady fingers (lange vingers in Dutch)
– 1 mango, mature and ready to eat
– 125 grams of mascarpone
– 500 grams of low fat quark
– 50 grams of caster sugar (witte basterdsuiker)
– about 50 grams of white chocolate
– peel of 1/2 (organic) orange
– 2 tbspns of pistachio nuts
– 1 bag of earl grey tea
Start by making a mug of strong earl grey tea. Let it cool down, and break your lady fingers in half to make sure they will fit easily in a glass (or, don’t break them and choose to prepare the tiramisu in a tray and serve on plates) and dip all the lady fingers in the mix. Try to do this as subtle as possible so the lady fingers won’t get too moist. Place the dipped lady fingers in the bottom of your glasses, forming the first layer. Top this with grated peel of half an orange.
Next, place the mango (without skin or pit!) in a food processor and mix it for about 15 seconds until a nice mixture forms. Spread a layer of this mango mix over the lady finger bottom.
Then, take 2/3 of your white chocolate bar and grate it roughly so you get chocolate curls. Mix together the mascarpone, quark, sugar and chocolate curls. Spread this mixture over the mango layer and leave the tiramisu to set in the fridge for at least one hour. Right before serving, roughly chop your pistachios and grate the last piece of chocolate. Decorate the dessert with the pistachios and chocolate and… enjoy!
Hope this makes you as excited for Christmas as I am! If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Wish you all a good and warming Christmas. Cheers!
