Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A light, fluffy frozen almond mousse, studded with almonds and red and green cherries. These are really easy to make and, their flavor improves if they're made a few weeks in advance, and stored in the freezer.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • In a small bowl, beat egg white until foamy. Gradually beat in sugar, and continue beating until thick and glossy; set aside.
  • Whip cream in a large bowl. Carefully fold in sherry, almond extract, macaroon crumbs, ground almonds, and chopped red and green cherries. Gently fold egg white into cream mixture.
  • Spoon into 8 paper baking cups placed in medium size muffin tray. Sprinkle with slivered almonds. Cover muffin tray with clear plastic wrap, then wrap with aluminum foil. Freeze overnight.
  • To serve: Let sit for 5 minutes at room temperature, then garnish with maraschino cherry halves.
