Creamy fruit baskets
500g/18oz mascarpone cheese
5 tablespoons cr?me fra?che
2 tablespoons clear honey,
6 half-coated chocolate waffle or
brandy snap baskets
100g/4oz strawberries, hulled
• Finely grate and reserve 1 tablespoon orange zest. Pare off a little extra
orange zest, and cut into very thin strips; reserve. Peel all the oranges,
removing as much of the white pith as possible. Divide into segments.
• Put the mascarpone cheese in a bowl with the orange zest, and beat
until smooth. Add half of the crème fraîche with the honey to taste. Stir
through, then add enough of the remaining crème fraîche to give a fairly
stiff dropping consistency. Cover and chill for at least 30 minutes.
• To serve, fill the baskets with the crème fraîche mixture, and top with the
orange segments and sliced strawberries. Decorate with orange strips.
