Yeah for Memorial Day Week-end;-) Though I am aware and recognize that Memorial day is a special day for our nation, Memorial Week-end also symbolizes the beginning of the summer and the end of the school year. And so, for those reasons, I have waited for this week-end with open arms. I could not wait for it to come so that I could hang out, be lazy, sleep late, enjoy the sun and cook;-) What have you done this week-end? Have you gone out-of-town? did you go to the beach? We momentarily thought to go to the beach but my nephew graduated from Spartanburg High School this past Friday and so we decided to stay to celebrate this very special event. If High school graduation is special for you, it is even more special for our family because Daniel, my nephew, born swiss from a Swiss father and a German mother, is the first person in our family to graduate from an American School on an American ground. So so special!!!
So besides celebrating this special day , what else have I done this week-end? I have woken late, went to the movies last night and played in my kitchen.
I love to cook, but when it is beautiful outside and you have the chance to enjoy this nice weather, why spend hours in the kitchen to make treats. So for those same reason, I wanted to offer this treat. It requires few ingredients, and it is quick and easy to make and it would make for a fun dessert tomorrow;-)
Ingredients for 6 to 8 shot glasses:
- 1 1/2 cup of heavy cream
- 1/2 box of mascarpone cream cheese at room temperature
- 1 cup of frozen or fresh blueberries
- 1-2 tbsp of sugar, or agave, or even honey.
- In a bowl, mix the heavy cream with the sugar and beat until it is becoming thicker but still liquid.
- Add the soft mascarpone cheese to the heavy cream, and you will see that the mixture will become thicker.
- Fill a small plastic bag with the whipped cream and set aside.
- Place the blueberry in a chopper and puree the blueberries.
- To make the dessert, fill the shot glass with some heavy cream. Then spoon some of the blueberry puree on top of the cream. Repeat this until you reach the top of the shot glass.
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
