The crunchy almond cookies replace soft smushy ladyfingers for a welcome twist on the classic dessert.

    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 3 cups mascarpone
    • 3 Tbsp. dark rum
    • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt

    2. Place espresso in a small bowl. Working in batches, gently mix and turn cookies in espresso 20 seconds to soak. Divide cookies among glasses and top each with 1/2 cup mascarpone mixture. Chill at least 1 hour.
