Verrine of Goat Cheese and Fresh Fruit

Something light and fruity for dessert?

This looks impressive, but is not at all difficult!

Ingredients

8 ounces fresh goat cheese

2 tablespoons honey

1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced

1 pint blueberries, picked over for stems

8 springs fresh mint, for garnish

Tea biscuits, torn pieces of moist sponge cake or sweet crackers

Assembly

Place the cheese and honey in a medium-size bowl and beat with a hand mixer into a fluffy mixture.  Spoon a layer of cheese into one large glass bowl or 8 large shot glasses, then a layer of crushed cookies or sponge cake, then top with a berry layer and finish with a cheese layer.  Top each glass with a mint sprig.

Serves: 8
