Ok, it's not perfect but it's so close that no one noticed a difference in my tiramisu. Mascarpone costs about four times as much as these ingredients at our local markets. Give it a try if you face the same costs and I doubt you'll have any regrets. The yield is almost 2 lbs. and of course a half recipe is right at a pound. Prep time doesn't include the hour or so needed for ingredients to reach room temp.
Directions See How It's Made
- Allow cream cheese and butter to reach room temperature.
- Beat until the butter is incorporated, add whipping cream and beat just until thoroughly blended.
- If you need to store leftover "mascarpone", keep refrigerated in tightly sealed containers filled as full as possible.
- On partly filled containers, putting a layer of plastic wrap directly on the cheese before sealing keeps it fresh longer.
