Recipe by Park Rangerette
After a nice dinner in an Italian restaurant, my mom, daughter & I shared a fabulous dessert - the sweet cream was rich and berries were layered inside. I went on a mission to re-create the dessert and came up with this recipe. The cream is soft -- not stiff or firm, like whipped cream. You can use your favorite fresh fruit or coulis. Layer it in a clear glass goblet or parfait dish; about 2 cups of berries or fruit coulis will be right.

What a luscious, creamy treat! Reduced the sugar by about half, and it was still great. Used fresh raspberries, with fresh mint and lemon zest for garnish. Delicious--thanks for sharing, Park Rangerette!
