pure vanilla extract
- In a small chilled metal bowl whisk heavy cream in a figure eight motion. Just as soft peaks are forming, add the granulated sugar gradually. Continue whipping the cream until stiff peaks form.
- Cover the bowl and chill in an ice bath. Combine room temperature mascarpone and cream cheese with a rubber scraper. Add vanilla and powdered sugar. When cheese mixture reaches a smooth consistency, set aside, keeping the mixture at room temperature. Just before serving , lightly fold whipped cream into the cheese mixture.
