Quickie dessert for the baking challenged

This afternoon I was heading to a friends housewarming party. Seeing as I'm baking challenged, had limited time, and it was too hot to turn on the oven- I went with this. It turned out to be a really easy major crowd pleaser.

Ingredients: 1 package crisp lady fingers, a little Framboise, 1 small tub Mascarpone cheese, ~1 cup heavy cream, a little granulated sugar, ~1T vanilla extract, assorted berries, good dark chocolate

Recipe: Whip up mascarpone, Whip up cream, vanilla and sugar to soft peaks, Fold into mascarpone, Layer some ladyfingers in the bottom of a trifle dish or glass bowl, Drizzle with a little booze, layer with berries, layer with cream, lick fingers and admire how delicious cream is, repeat layering, save a few berries to garnish top and shave with a little chocolate if you wish, wait for applause.
