Fresh Berries with Mascarpone Cream

Most of you know that I’m not a baker.

Baking cookies, cakes, brownies, bread, etc. requires measuring and I don’t like to do that.

I do like to Taste & Add. That means I taste and add ingredients until something tastes the way I want it to taste.

That’s why Fresh Berries and Mascarpone Cream is my go-to dessert.


Berries and Mascarpone Cream

All you need is mascarpone, heavy cream, powdered sugar, pure vanilla extract and fresh berries.

The other night I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

Whip the 8 ounce container of mascarpone:

Add about a cup of heavy whipping cream:

Now all you have to do is add the cream and berries to a glass or bowl:

You can neatly layer the two if you want but I like to dollop:

Add cream then berries then cream then berries — you get the idea.

And that’s all there is to it.
