I made these for special company and the were a hit. Not only was the presentation in mason jars unique and a show piece, the individual servings made it a snap to serve. I loved the easy prep I was able to do in advance. And the taste...delicious! I needed to make more whipped cream than specified. The 1 cup heavy cream made only slightly more than the 1 1/2 cups whipped needed to incorporate with the whipped cream. I made an additional 2/3 cups plus a bit of sugar to have for topping.
