Mascarpone Brulee with Fresh Berries

I'm not a big dessert person but this is my idea of the perfect finish to that early summer dinner."

- Mix strawberries, blackberries, 1/3 cup sugar, and orange juice together in a bowl. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate, 2 hours to overnight.
- Stir mascarpone cheese, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, and vanilla extract together in a bowl.
- Spread mascarpone mixture over the top of each shortcake half; sprinkle about 1 teaspoon sugar over the top to cover. Caramelize the sugar using a kitchen torch, 20 to 30 seconds per shortcake. Place each shortcake in a shallow bowl and surround with berries and accumulated juices.
- Cook's Note:
- If you can't find fresh berries those mixed frozen berries will fill in nicely. You can substitute any berries for the blackberries.
- You can substitute cream cheese for the mascarpone. You can substitute plain scones for the shortcakes.
