This can be made ahead for a delicious birthday brunch or for Mother's day. It's easy to make but a nicely complex flavor and texture combination. Sorry my candid picture is not up to the actual beauty of this dish -- can't find my staged shot!

The individual components of this dish are amazing on their own... so imagine how good it is when you put them all together! The Crew and I devoured this dish... and ended up dipping fruit in the leftover cream. Yum! The Test Kitchen
