Sometimes the food that looks the messiest taste the best. Now add chocolate chip cookie, whipped cream, and (of course!) coffee, and you’ve got yourself a new favorite dessert – and, luckily, it’s an easy and inexpensive dessert to make without sacrificing on taste.
When our pantries seem to be getting scarcer and the weather is warmer outside, the last thing we want to do is turn on a hot oven for hours. The ingredients are simple and keep well in the fridge afterward for a cool dessert on a hot day.
So here’s the Creamy Coffee Cookie Dessert (and a delight it is) brought to you by Kitchen Stories.
100 ml coffee
100 ml heavy cream
200 g quark (if you can’t find quark, cream cheese works well too!)
100 g yogurt
8 tsp sugar
1½ tsp vanilla sugar
150 g cookies
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- Make a pot of strong coffee and set aside to cool. Whip the heavy cream in a bowl until stiff, then chill in the refrigerator. Now beat together the quark, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Taste as you go and adjust sugar volume to preference.
- Gently fold the beaten cream into the quark-yogurt-mixture until smooth and creamy.
- Choose cookies of your choice, then dip in cold coffee, crush them and distribute among the glasses so that each has a thin layer. Now spoon one or two tablespoons of the cream on top, followed by some sifted cocoa powder. Add more layers in this order, making sure you end with a layer of cream on top and garnish with more crushed cookies. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hr. or until the cookies are softened and intensely coffee-flavored.
