Whip the cream until it just holds its shape. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone cheese and mix in the confectioners' sugar. Stir in a little brandy (about, 1 tbsp.) and check the taste. Add a little more brandy if desired. Put into two pretty serving dishes and chill for a couple of hours. Sprinkle berries with a little confectioners' sugar. Just before serving divide berries between two dishes and pile them on top of the mascarpone mixture. Decorate with mint leaves dipped in a little egg white and then confectioners' sugar. If desired, for garnish place 2 cookies or sweet biscuits such as ladyfingers (standing up as in photo) into each dessert.
Makes 2 servings.
