Something delicious, quick and no bake?
If you love fruit then you will love this one!
An easy dessert made with berries, mascarpone cheese, fresh cream and finger biscuits. Simple ingredients but lots of taste!
Use frozen berries if you cannot find fresh ones... any berries you like: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries..they will all work very well.
I can still find some blackberries in the woods over here so I am making the most of them. Cakes and desserts with fruit are my absolute favourites.

Then whiz them
Mix the mascarpone cheese with the powdered sugar, the vanilla; whip the cream and gently add it to the mascarpone.
Dip the biscuits into the berry sauce and line them up on a serving dish
Put some of the mascarpone mixture on top and some fresh berries.
Continue making layers until the end of the ingredients. Finish off with a layer of fresh berries and if you have some berry sauce left over pour it on top.
Put it in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.
