And this is it!! One of my favorite summer fruity desserts. I've slightly tweaked the original recipe by Lynee Rossetto Kasper. So easy to make and a sure winner. For my kids I infused the strawberries in pink lemonade instead of Zinfandel.
Servings - About 4
2 hours (Strawberries infusing with wine)
5 minutes (whipping the Mascarpone)
10 minutes (Putting it together)
Total - 2 hours 15 minutes
1/2 lb Strawberries (hulled and halved)
1/3 cup Zinfandel or any sweet wine
8 oz tub Mascarpone
2-3 tablespoons powdered Sugar
Place strawberries in a bowl and pour Zinfandel over them. Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours.
In a separate bowl whip together Mascarpone and sugar.
Place some whipped Mascarpone in a wine glass or any dessert cup. Then add some infused strawberries over it. Add another dollop of Mascarpone and end with a top layer of strawberries.
Spoon a little of the wine from the bowl into the sides of the glass.
Repeat with the rest of the berries and Mascarpone.
