      I did as everybody else before and used 3 milk and 1 heavy cream and it came out great. I did a small trick to incorporate the mascarpone in the milk: I plaed the mascarpone in a min blender, added one cup of milk turned it on until it was well mixed and without lumps. then returned the mixture to the milk and all was fine!

      Holy Cannoli! (Sorry, had to do it) This came out tasting SOOOO good!<br/><br/>Instead of almonds, I used finely crushed pistachios (in keeping with tradition)

      Great dessert with our Italian meal. I did use fresh bing cherries but it was still great. We have lots left so will have it again soon.
