This spongy, layered cake is a perfect accompaniment to that post-dinner espresso. Made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, the java flavor seeps through the layers of whipped cream, cocoa and a mascarpone cheese/sugar mixture. Some recopies will include a dash of amaretto or Marsala for a slight flavor boost.

Simply translated, gelato is Italian for ice cream. But the recipe is a bit different and clearly evident in its creamy taste and strong flavors of pistachio, tiramisu and other sugary and fruity varieties. Gelato is made with a small amount of air, attributing to its slightly fluffy consistency, and it is lower in fat but higher in sugar than standard ice creams. Served in a cone or a cup, scoops start at just €2.

Originating in Sicily, and Sicilian for ¨little tube,¨ creamy ricotta fills the fried dough cone sprinkled with sugar and served in various sizes. A myriad of fillings have inserted themselves in these fried cones as the dessert has evolved throughout the world.

What may seem like a classic croissant from the outside can be full of sweet surprises with one bite. Cornetti are pastries that can be coated with a simple glaze, or they can be stuffed with sweet jams, mostly fruit flavored. They also can be filled with creamy milk or dark chocolate, providing a sweet start to your day.
