    Sharlene~W's Note:

    Found this amazing recipe in a magazine at the dentist and scrawled it on a scrap of paper. On the way home, I stopped by the market to get necessary ingredients and made it for dinner that evening. Incredible. I am sure any combination of berries would be wonderful. I am a mascarpone cheese convert--it is a softer, more delicate flavor than cream cheese and perfect in this recipe. Hope you enjoy! (Prep time includes 1 hour fruit sits in refrigerator).

      It took me awhile to find the soft ladyfingers (next to Twinkies) but they made this dessert scrumptious. They soak up the strawberries and cream mixture nicely. I used my Kitchen Aid to mix the mascarpone and accidentally curdled the mixture when I mixed the cream in! It was lumpy but still delicious. Thanks Sharlene, for another great recipe. Roxygirl
