I top mine with a glaze of some sort. Sometimes it's lemon and sometimes it's raspberry glaze. I've also had them plain and like em that way too. up to you
***Note this glaze recipe is not included in the book I found it online and tweaked it till I liked it.***
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (I have also used Lemon extract ) (or the juice from the berries!)
1 Tbsp heavy cream
mix confectioner's sugar, cream and lemon juice with whisk until smooth
(glaze should be thick, yet pourable).
Add more sugar or lemon juice, as necessary, to achieve desired consistency.
