Description

Preparation:

  2. In another bowl, stir together the mascarpone, yogurt, orange zest and juice, honey, until creamy and uniform in texture.
  3. Cut ladyfingers in four pieces and combine with syrup.
  4. Take two or four glasses and layer first the ladyfingers pieces, then the cream and last the berries. Serve immediately or chilled.

Notes:

– If there are no kids eating this dessert you could add a splash of Grand Marnier into the cream.

– If you are making it ahead of time, store covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to a day. The cream will firm up slightly when it’s refrigerated.

– You could replace the orange for lemon if you prefer it.
