Mascarpone dessert

  Summer is the time for berries! Choose any berries you like- raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and layer with creamy topping and the easiest dessert is done!

  So we need some berries fresh or frozen. Combine them with icing or fine sugar and zest of lemon, it helps to release their  juices, add a bit of wine or liqueur  for taste. Let stand for 20-30min. Don’t be upset a lot if you have no berries or may be it’s winter now and berries are quite expensive, use jam! 🙂
  In a bowl with whisk or an electric mixer beat together mascarpone, yogurt and honey until mixture holds stiff peaks. You’ll get velvety, delicately sweet mascarpone mixture!
  I’m not adding heavy cream/whipped cream to mascarpone – I put yogurt. In my opinion mascarpone cheese itself is so buttery-rich, thick and there is no need to add more heavy cream. But “Every man to his taste”.
And you can add sugar and vanilla instead of honey.
Take glasses and layer the berries with the whipped mascarpone. Garnish with almond/amaretto cookies.
Enjoy!
