Navid: This recipe is very versatile and and no matter how you change it, it always taste delicious and refreshing. For this recipe, a Mascarpone and blueberry combination works well. But you can also replace them with your desired filling and a different berry. Lemon cream filling with raspberry would be another good combination. You can also replace the crust with the ready to use puff pastry.
