I first ran across this recipe for Berrymisu in Sunset two years ago and have been looking for a chance to make it ever since. We’re not big dessert people so it’s been trickier than you’d expect.
I thought I’d make it last summer and even bought a bottle of limoncello in anticipation but never got any further. Most of last summer’s berries were eaten on top of yogurt or in Sangria.
Yesterday it happened! Of course, I chose the least convenient time to make it since most of our servingware is packed up for the kitchen remodel. I improvised with some stemless wine glasses and actually prefer the result: adorable individual servings that show off the luxurious layers and beautiful colors.
Of course, one look at the fat and calories and I think we can keep this one as a biannual treat. Luckily, one of them was big enough for Brad and I to share.
