This is the quickest summer dessert you’ll ever make..  Serves 4 people.

You need:  4 pretty glasses
                  very good vanilla ice cream
                  4 double espressos
                  8 Amaretti biscuits (optional)

Place one or two balls of good vanilla ice cream in each glass. Pour over the hot, strong coffee. Crush the Italian Amaretti  biscuits with one hand and sprinkle over the top.. and now sip your coffee.  Hey presto – you have dessert and coffee in one.

Needless to say this must be made at the very last minute, and served immediately.

PS.. You may add some alcohol to it if you like – Baileys or Amaretti could be rather nice!
