Chocolate Icebox Cake with Mascarpone and Blackberries

WOW! Talk about Heaven on a chocolate cookie! Although I do agree with KimberlyFla that the original with sweetened whipped cream is absolutely divine, especially for those of us who don't care for the taste of alcohol so much.

I might try incorporating fresh berries and skip the liqueur altogether. Yummmmy!

Canning jars not sealed

Thank you everyone for your many suggestions and words of expertise; I so appreciate it as I just made strawberry jam and one of the 60 jars did not seal. I feel quite successful and will simply store the one jar in the refrigerator and not worry about it as I am sure it will be gone in 2 or 3 days anyway. Next year I will know exactly what to do and what not to do thanks to all of you. Enjoy summer 2008! Thanks again!
