Roasted Strawberries with Mascarpone Whipped Cream

Roasted strawberries with mascarpone whipped cream is a fabulous, brightly-flavored dessert that feels like Italy in every bite. I roast strawberries with some sugar, olive oil and Vin Santo - a dessert wine that's traditional to Tuscany, Italy. However, if you can't get your hands on Vin Santo, I find that this recipe still works when using a dessert wine or sherry. Topped with a silky-smooth mascarpone whipped cream, and crumbled almond biscotti or amaretti, it's a really romantic dessert that feels incredibly special - and a perfect finish to almost any meal.
