Made it according to the recipe. Except that I used half a package of Koopmans kruidnoten, that was enough. Didn’t place them in the fridge for two hours, served them right away.

Ingredients

½ package of Koopmans Kruidnoten

2×2 tablespoons water

100 ml strong coffee

200 grams mascarpone

3 eggs

100 grams sugar

Instructions

Prepare the kruidnoten according to package instructions. Let them cool down. Crumble part of the cookies.

Mix the coffee with the crumbled kruidnoten in a bowl. Let the mixture soak for a while, before dividing them over 4 glasses. When preparing a coffee free version, don’t soak the crumbled cookies in coffee, just add the crumbled cookies to the glass.

Separate the egg yolks and whites. Place them in separate bowls. Stiffen the egg whites with half of the sugar. Whisk the egg yolks creamy with the rest of the sugar.

Add the mascarpone to the egg yolks. Whisk it. Fold in the egg whites with the egg yolks. Place this on top of the crumbled kruidnoten. Serve topped with the remaining kruidnoten.

Notes:

  • Recipe source is the Koopmans website.
  • Enough for 4 persons.
  • When not serving immediately, place the cups in the fridge and don’t top them with the kruidnoten yet. Do this right before serving them. They will be soggy otherwise.
  • Replace the Koopmans kruidnoten with kruidnoten made from scratch, you can use this recipe.
