Yummy enchiladas are ready to serve!


Whipping cream                                          1 cup
Mascarpone cheese                                    1 cup
Sugar                                                           1/3 cup
Coffee                                                          2 cups
Ladyfinger biscuits                                      (as required)
Cocoa powder                                              for dusting on top

(Mascarpone cheese can be made at home: take 6 oz. softened cream cheese, 2 tbsp sour cream, 3 tbsp heavy cream and mix together)


1.  Beat whipping cream, sugar and vanilla until soft peaks form.
2.  Add mascarpone cheese and continue to whip until stiff peaks are formed.
3.  Dip ladyfinger biscuits in the coffee mixture — don’t let them sit in the mixture for too long to avoid them from falling apart. A quick dunk in the coffee mix is enough.
4.  Spread the biscuits in an 8x8 inch pan, spread the whipped cream mixture on top of it, repeat the biscuit layer and whipped cream process again.
5.  Dust cocoa powder on top. 
 (Best to refrigerate it for 4 hours before serving) HH
