Roll the dough out on a floured surface and cut into biscuits and place these on a baking tray that has been lined with baking parchment. Put in the fridge for one hour and then bake in the pre-heated oven for 25-30 minutes.
  • Next make the ricotta cream by beating the ricotta, cream, vanilla, sugar and lemon zest together until smooth. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
  • To make the compote, place the blueberries, sugar and Kirsch in a saucepan and bring to just under a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and cook gently for 5-10 minutes.
  • To serve place a shortbread biscuit on a serving dish and pipe some ricotta cream on top and garnish with some fresh raspberries. Put another biscuit on top of the cream and repeat process. Drizzle some blueberries and compote around the shortbread.
