This is a very elegant dessert, especially for Christmas dinner. It is bright white and with red fruit and a sprig of mint makes it perfect. You don't have to tell anyone it is easy to make.

This flavor combination is perfect in this recipe. It's so light and creamy. I did use the Kircsh and loved it. I also used a raspberry sauce as my fruit garnish. Carol is right... this is a very impressive dessert. Your guests don't need to know how easy it is! Would be a lovely way to end a special date night dinner. The Test Kitchen
