Tips & Variations

This is a really lovely berry dessert! I opted to use the Limoncello, which I'm glad I did because the flavor of the whipped cream/mascarpone is optimum. I almost wish that I whipped it less, so as to have it softly drape over the berries, hugging them with all that deliciousness. I also used strawberries and blueberries because that's what I had available. My kids and husband enjoyed it as much as I did and I can see this as a perfect finale to a special (or anytime) dinner. Thank you, ellie, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.
