Mascarpone Blueberry Matchsticks

Okay, this dish simply just proofs that I do have a very strong “sweet tooth”. This is simple, but full of textures and flavour. A full bite of this ‘matchstick’ will pretty much give you sweet, savour, crispy, creamy, cheesy, hot and cold! HAHAH, and believe it or not. It is definitely one of the most EASIEST dessert I’ve made. I’ve always wanted to do something that is quick, best to store in fridge and is always READY when I wanted to grab something to satisfy my taste buds! I came across to this recipe through one of my favourite Cooking magazines – women’s weekly cooking magazines. I love them.
