Rustic Mascarpone Cheesecake with Summer Berries

Serves 6-8 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 45 minutes   Rated:

I love a good cheesecake for almost any occasion, and while this isn’t strictly a New York Cheesecake, it isn’t far from it Top it with amazing summer berries and you really are in dessert heaven. A dredging with icing sugar wouldn’t go astray either. Channel your inner Donna Hay. Go on. You know you want to. This will look gorgeous on your Mother's Day table, don't you agree?
