- 1⁄4 cup sugar, divided
- 1 cup mascarpone
- 1⁄4 cup yogurt
- 2 tablespoons chopped lemon balm or 2 tablespoons lemon verbena or 2 tablespoons mint or 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest

This is a lovely summery dessert. I just used fresh peaches as my stone fruit and then added grated lemon as I had no mint. It made a very pretty trifle.
