A wonderfully easy dessert recipe that’s perfect for strawberry season!
Cut up your strawberries and put them in a glass container or bowl (you can keep 4 whole if you want to use them for garnish). Slice oranges in half and squeeze the juice over the berries. If your oranges are large you could cut this down to 2.
Place the berries in the fridge for about 2 to 4 hours. Give them a shake every hour if you can.
Now in the bowl of a mixer combine your heavy cream and confectioners’ sugar. Whip until peaks form. Place your ricotta in a large bowl. Stir in half of the whipped cream and mix a bit. Then add other half of the whipped cream and fold it in.
Place a layer of crushed cookies in the bottom of your parfait or other serving glasses. Add a layer of strawberries. Add a light layer of pistachios. Add a layer of cannoli cream. Repeat steps for a second layer. Top with remaining chopped pistachios. Add a strawberry garnish on top. Refrigerate for about an hour or more.
Serve with a big old strawberry, cannoli, pistachio smile!

This peanut butter cream pie is made extra yummy by using a chocolate cream base and a meringue topping. It’s a little bit more work than some of the recipes I’ve posted but it is well worth it. And hard as it is to resist, it is best when left to set up and then cool completely in the refrigerator.
