  3. Lightly butter bread on one side and arrange on baking sheet then sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Bake until crisp and beginning to brown, about 10 minutes.
  5. Cool to room temperature. (If making ahead, wrap tightly; store at room temperature.)
  6. In medium bowl, with electric mixer, beat ricotta, mascarpone, confectioners’ sugar, and preserves until smooth.
  7. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  8. Just before serving, place 8 toasts on work surface.
  9. Spread cheese filling on toasts, dividing evenly; dot with berries.
  10. Stack 4 of the prepared toasts on remaining prepared toasts; top each with a plain toast; press gently to secure.
  11. Place each on a serving plate. If desired, sift confectioners’ sugar over Napoleons. Serve immediately.
