The goat's cheese is sweetened and whipped with cream to create a sweet and tangy base for the berries that's both light and rich at the same time. The berries can be a mix of whatever you have on hand, or whatever was on sale at the store. Plus, they look adorable which makes them a great choice if you are having people over for dinner.
It took a bit of trial and error before I had a recipe that I was 100% happy with. The first batch was too sweet and the goat cheese barely noticeable. Then I went in the opposite direction and sort of overdid the goat's cheese flavor with the next batch. As I was sampling them all I could think was "ooh.. that's really goaty"
Not exactly the words you want to come to mind when eating dessert (is 'goaty' even a word?).
The third batch was the charm with the goat cheese and sweetness level hitting a nice balance. It's like the Goldilocks of recipe development: Too Bland, Too Goaty, Juuuuust Right.
