Easy Homemade Mascarpone Cheese
Happy first of May!
I am very surprised that the Miami weather is still clement.
My windows are open and I can feel the wonderful breeze around the house and it has put me in a mood for delicious creamy spreads.
This cheese in a store is a bit expensive but this homemade version is just as good and way cheaper.
Mascarpone is an Italian soft cream cheese that is super creamy and the main ingredient in Tiramisu.
Try it and you’ll want to add it to every dish you can think of!
I made some broccoli souffle today that called for cream cheese and substituted it for my Homemade Mascarpone Cheese. It was amazing!
You can also add it to desserts, omelettes, crostinis, polentas, mashed potatoes, etc
The ingredients are:
- Heavy Cream
- Lime Juice
The process is simple as well:
We whip the cream while adding the lime juice
We whip until we achieve stiff peaks
And finally we place a colander in a bowl and line it with cheesecloth.
We place the cream there, cover it and let it drain overnight in the fridge
And now you’re done.
See? Told you it was easy.
You can add some salt, herbs, spices or nuts and make it your own.
This recipe is easily cut in half or doubled.
