    Made as a delicious alternative to pumpkin pie for Turkey Day. Planning already to make for Christmas. Some notes: 1. Took THREE HOURS to make! (Segmenting all those dratted oranges!) 2. Do not whip cream and mascarpone separately planning to fold them together (ha!); stir solid mascarpone into liquid cream until dissolved and thick as custard, then whisk by hand until you get SOFT PEAKS only. It will continue to stiffen a bit when you mix in the marmalade and spread it in the bowl.

    I made this for a holiday dinner party. Everyone loved it and I would definitely make it again. I used some blood oranges as well as navel and Valencia. The red segments were beautiful on top. This takes much more than 1 hour to prepare due to the orange segment preparation.

    Considering how long it took to prepare this I was very disappointed. I even made my own gluten free pound cake, which was delicious, but the amount of Grand Marnier comes across as much too strong. It needs to be deluted with something else. For example... in tiramisu you mix the rum with espresso. Could have potential, but needs to be tweaked.
