Ingredients
Method
 
  • Pound of pitted cherries
  • 3-4 leaves of mint, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons of liquor of your choice (we use brandy or cognac)
  • white sugar
  • 3/4 cup of mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
Toss cherries with liquor in a bowl with a little sugar, if cherries are tart add more sugar, if cherries are already sweet you can omit the sugar.

Refrigerate for an hour or two.

In a separate bowl whip cheese, chopped mint & cream adding in a spoonful of sugar of two until incorporated & smooth. Mixture should have just a hint of sweetness to it - not sugary.

Spoon cherries with syrup into a pretty serving dish or cup (we use a martini glass) and top with a couple spoon full of marscapone.

Garnish with fresh mint.
We added a short bread cookie for a little crunch! You could also fill a tart shell with a layer of the cheese & then top with cherries - that is really good too!

Enjoy! The perfect ending to a summer lunch.
