I came home yesterday evening from the kids training, to find a bowl brimming with delicious, luscious raspberries on my doorstep. It didn’t take me long to find out where they came from…due to a missed call on my mobile. My very lovely, elderly neighbours (am I allowed to call them that? They are over eighty!) dropped them by.
So I just couldn’t resist making this post…
1 bowl of raspberries
1 bottle of raspberry sirup/squash
500g/ 2 cups mascarpone or philadelphia
500g/ 2 cups low fat curd cheese
400g/ 13.5 ozs sponge biscuits
1 bunch of mint
Mix the mascarpone and the curd cheese together and put half the mixture in a separate bowl. Stir in a couple of handfuls of raspberries and a dollop of sirup into to one of the bowls to create the raspberry creme. Lay the sponge fingers into the form (25x15cm) and soak with the sirup, spoon the raspberry creme over them and place another layer of sponge fingers on top, drizzle some sirup over the sponge fingers and cover with the creme from the other bowl (if you like it sweeter you can add some icing sugar). Decorate with raspberries and leave in the fridge for an hour or two to chill.
Just the right after school/ homework treat!
Maybe you should treat yourself too….
