I love the rustic simplicity of Italian cooking so after picking some blackberries I thought a creamy torta di more would be perfect to make for pudding after Sunday lunch.
I used shop bought short crust pastry and rolled it out to fill a dish and baked following the instructions on the packet. I then mixed together 250 g mascarpone and 150 ml single cream with four teaspoons of sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Once the pastry case had cooked and cooled, I added the creamy filling and plenty of blackberries on top and put in the fridge to set for 30 mins. Jamie Oliver does one similar but adds grappa to his I think and most definitely would make his own pastry too!
A perfect seasonal dish to enjoy!
