Fresh Berries with Balsamic Drizzle and Almond Cream

Yield:
4 to 6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 pound sliced or quartered strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 3 tablespoons lightly toasted sliced almonds
Directions
  • Place the balsamic vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to about half the original volume and vinegar has a syrupy consistency, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside to cool to room temperature.

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the mascarpone, sugar, and almond extract and whisk until very smooth and sugar has dissolved.

  • When ready to serve the dessert, divide the strawberries, raspberries and blackberries evenly between 4 or 6 small dessert coupes. Place a generous dollop of the cream mixture over the top of the fruit, then drizzle with a teaspoon or two of the reduced balsamic vinegar. Garnish with almonds and serve immediately.
