A 4th of July Re-Post

So 4th of July is right around the corner!  What are your plans?  More important... What's on your menu?  We are going to Tahoe for the weekend with a group of friends.  I will do my very best to remember to take pictures of any blog worthy dishes.  In case you are looking for a special treat to serve for your star spangled weekend,  I thought I'd pull out a post from last year and send it your way.  I LOVE this dessert!  It's so pretty, it tastes great & it's really easy to make!  Maybe you remember it from last year, maybe you don't... either way a little Re-Post never hurts!  Have a safe, fun and full holiday!  Enjoy!

Berry Delicious Mascarpone Cups

Won Ton Wrappers
Melted Butter
Cinnamon-Sugar Mixture
1 Package Mascarpone Cheese
Orange Juice
Fresh Berries (I used Strawberries & Blueberries)
Optional Topping*

1. Preheat oven to 350 F

2. Brush the individual wonton wrappers with melted butter on each side, sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture & place in mini muffin pan.

3. Bake for approx 10 min or until edges are golden brown. Set aside to cool.

4. Meanwhile, mix mascarpone with honey & OJ to desired taste. (careful not to make it too thin) You can even add a little orange zest if desired.

5. Once wonton shells are cooled, add a spoonful of cheese mixture. Top with fresh berries and Topping of your choice. *The first time I had it with whipped cream, even Cool Whip would be great. In this photo I made it with a white chocolate drizzle for the patriotic theme. You could even do a dusting of powdered sugar if you so desired. The possibilities are almost endless...

Note: Find wonton wrappers in the refrigerated produce section of most supermarkets.
