This sounds wonderful and looks really fancy without all that much effort. I originally found this recipe in the UK cooking magazine Olive. Cooking time includes the 1hr chilling time.

Really delicious and a lovely cooling dessert on a hot, summer's day. This was not too sweet, just tart enough. LIghtly-creamy. Elegant enough for company. A keeper, in short.
