  • ½ pound raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ¼ cup amaretto liqueur
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (8 ounce) container mascarpone cheese

Drain through a fine mesh sieve set over a bowl to remove seeds and reserve raspberry sauce.
  2. Combine amaretto liqueur, heavy cream, and remaining sugar in a mixing bowl. Whip until soft peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese and blend thoroughly.
  3. Place 1 or 2 tablespoons crushed amaretti in the bottom of a serving glass. Add whipped mascarpone mixture and a layer of raspberry sauce. Repeat layers and top with 1 reserved raspberry and 1 whole amaretti cookie. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
