But every now and then, I allow myself a small digression from the "eating plan" and make something sweet. I make dessert, even in the middle of this crazy Italian summer (See what I did there? I called it an eating plan, I didn't use the D-word).
Plus, taking advantage of the season's amazing fruit, I convince myself that these desserts don't even constitute a danger for said
These particular tartlets combine the aromatic, succulent pinkish flesh of the Saturn peach, with the spiced kick of ginger contained in the base, and the cold, creamy middle. I use ricotta, but you could use mascarpone, gelato, cream cheese, Greek yogurt or – if you're feeling particularly sinful – gorgonzola. Or even burrata.
Yes, I said burrata, stop salivating.
There's no need to turn on the oven to enjoy these Saturn peach tartlets. Just start with a great cookie to begin with, and assemble your way up. I'm using Pepparkakor biscuits, known outside of Sweden as ginger snaps, or ginger thins.
Quantity of units is up to you. I put out all the ingredients and eat as I build, while binge-watching my favorite Netflix series.
Ingredients, in liberal amounts
Ricotta cheese (or gelato, mascarpone, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, gorgonzola or burrata)
Saturn peaches, rinsed and sliced
Slather your dairy cream of choice on cookie. Top with sliced peaches. Devour.
Well as I always say: Where there's a will there's a way. And by golly to stay cool and on that wonderful food plan. Italy is having the hottest temps in ages and here in Indiana we have had more rain in July than seen in over one hundred years. I love the idea of your dessert -- sounds great and I'm not into really rich sweets the icy cold popsicles sound great. Have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
Your ode to sloth is right up my alley! ;-)ReplyDelete
Eleonora, thank you for two wonderful, no bake recipes which are perfect for the hot summer days.ReplyDelete
Sounds great! Those biscuits are available at Ikea in case anyone wants to know :). They cost next to nothing, unfortunately, you have to go to ikea to get them... I don't have any at home at the moment, and would love to try this recipe. I am with you on the pesca saturnia, they are heaven.ReplyDelete
