Berries with Mascarpone [RECIPE]

Heather first made this dish for my college graduation party many years ago, and I have loved it ever since. Nothing says summer like this light, buoyant dessert. Easy to prepare, but oh so delicious, this is the perfect finish to a special meal. It’s so easy to make, she even taught two of my interns, Jordan Tidwell and Rachel Breitfeller, how to prepare it!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (8-ounce) container mascarpone cheese (find this in the specialty cheese section of your local market)
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 1 pint blackberries
  • 1 quart strawberries, trimmed and sliced

DIRECTIONS

  1. Beat the whipping cream in an electric mixer until firm peaks form. Add mascarpone, powdered sugar, and vanilla. Blend until well combined. Serve over mixed berries.

YIELDS: 8 to 10 servings
