Patriotic Dessert: Berries with Mascarpone Cream Recipe

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend so far! We spent most of the day going to garage sales and found some awesome deals! I'm such a garage sale junkie! Its one of my favorite things about summer!

Today's recipe is perfect for the 4th of July, super easy to make and delicious!! After making the mascarpone cream, my brother and I realized it tastes just like the cream puff filling my Mom used to make when we were kids, minus the hard work that went into it. It is amazing!! You can use any fresh fruit you have on hand if you don't like, or don't have berries! Enjoy!
