Oh yum! I used the cream and berries as a topping for homemade pound cake and it was divine. I'll have to try with the cookie crust too. I will definitely be making the cream portion again! So light and fresh tasting with the fresh berries. Thanks for posting!

This is so easy and so wonderful! The almond extract in the cream layer is inspired. I cut the recipe in half and used raspberries fresh off the bush and a nectarine instead of the other berries because it's what I had. Lovely!
