    List of Ingredients

    Cherry Mascarpone Swirly Swoon
    create this dessert in small individual dishes, or a big glass bowl.

    1 package Italian ladyfingers
    1/2 cup orange juice or sherry, or a combination of both
    1 carton mascarpone cheese (17 oz.)
    1/2 cup cherry juice
    1/4 cup gooseberry or other berry jam
    2-3 cups fresh cherries, pitted and chopped slightly

    Select the serving dishes, using clear glass stemmed glasses or a large glass bowl for best effect. Brush each ladyfinger with the orange juice/sherry mixture and place in the serving dishes, breaking them into the right sizes, if needed. In a batter bowl, soften the cheese on half power for 30 seconds in the microwave. Whisk in the cherry juice, the jam (may need to microwave it 30 seconds on high to soften it), and then fold in the cherries. Pile into the ladyfinger lined dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3-4 hours before serving. Can be made 1-2 days in advance even. Garnish with whipped cream and chocolate covered cherries
