Crema Di Mascarpone (Chilled Cheese Dessert)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by twissis

The beauty of this dessert by Romeo Salta from "The Pleasures of Italian Cooking" is its simplicity. It is a no-cook & quick-fix taste sensation that is best when garnished w/fresh berries. Enjoy! (Time does not include time to chill the crema)

We didn't care for this. I would greatly decrease the cognac next time, it was too strong for us and illed the taste of the cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend the cheese in an electric blender till very smooth.
  2. Beat in the sugar, egg yolks, cream & Cognac till the mixture is very smooth & thick. Refrigerate till well-chilled.
  3. To Serve: Spoon chilled crema into 4-6 sml dessert bowls, ramekins or goblets. Fresh raspberries or strawberries were suggested as the ideal garnish, but I think a wide variety of imaginative choices would also work well.
