  • Just before serving, in a medium mixing bowl beat whipping cream with an electric mixer on low speed just until soft peaks form. Add mascarpone cheese or cream cheese, powdered sugar, and lemon peel; beat until fluffy (mixture will thicken as it is beaten).

  • Spread cheese mixture atop cooled crust. Top with strawberries. Garnish with chocolate curls or grated chocolate, if desired. Serve immediately. Makes 12 servings.
