My husband asked me to do this dessert for him. At first he asked me to do a “verrine” for him which translated in English means jar. With a lot of question and descriptions we finally came up that he was talking about a strawberry jar with a sweet filling. The place he used to get it from called them “verrine”. For the filling, I tried it first with cream cheese but it was not what he knew. I did again with the mascarpone and “BAM”, desired  taste for him.

Mascarpone is an Italian cheese generally used for dessert like the well known “tiramisu”. I chose to add butter cookies for a crunchy feeling.

Hubby gave a 9 out of 10 because I only made 2 jars (even though they were big enough) the first time. Now I am at a perfect 10 for making a lot 😊.
