Using imported, store bought rolled waffle cookie "Cigares" this dessert goes together in moments. Of course you can make your own rolled pizzelles instead, but when you're in a hurry these are a top-notch substitute.
This is the kind I use when I don't make my own; I find them at my local gourmet/food specialty store.
I piped some barely sweetened vanilla whipped cream, into the cigares. This time I also made some thick, warm and silky Sharfenberger Semi-Sweet Chocolate Ganache Sauce to dip.
Sometimes I serve a small portion of my preserved Brandied Cherries. Each June, in Bing Cherry season, I make Bing Cherry Jam, Brandied Cherries, Cherry Liqueur, and sometimes Cerises au Vinaigre ~ Cherries in Vinegar. (You could use store bought Brandied Cherries, or course.)
They are just as good with just the warm ganache ~ or a warm caramel sauce!
And your choice of fresh fruit, if you like.
And ~ Dish Alert ~ for my dish-a-holic friends!
My very good friend Jain (Once Upon a Blue Moon), lined me up with these darling little red Lionhead bowls.
Thank you Jain, my enabler! ((hugs!!)
