Ranked: 179th

Rated 4.8 out of 5 based on 10 votes

Ingredients

  • 150 g ricotta
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 100 g mascarpone
  • 1 x peach, diced
  • 1/8 cup chopped slivered almonds
  • 1 Tbls good quality white chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Tbls amaretto
  • 1 x sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 x peach for garnish

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
2. To make the puff pastry shells, I used waffle cones covered in alfoil and sprayed with cooking spray as a mould. Cut puff pastry sheet into 1cm strips. Working from the bottom of the mould, wind one strip around the waffle cone mould. Attach second strip to the end of the first strip and continue winding, pressing down lightly. Place on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes, until lightly golden. Continue with remaining pastry. Remove baking tray from oven and carefully remove waffle cone mould. Place puff pastry back into the oven for a further 5 minutes to crisp up the inside. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
To make the filling:
3. Beat Ricotta and caster sugar in a bowl until smooth, then beat in mascarpone. Fold in diced peach, chopped slivered almonds, chopped white chocolate and amaretto. Place in fridge to chill for 20 minutes.
4. Once Pastry shells are cool, pipe filling into shells.
5. Serve with some freshly sliced peach and raspberry coulis.

This recipe makes approx 6 pastry shells.

  • Now this is a real surprise because I don’t like ricotta or amaretto, but that doesn’t seem to matter because this still tastes fantastic!

    • Hi Anna, it is quite easy to make the cones. I used waffle cones as my “mould”, you can also buy pastry horn moulds, both work equally as well.
