Easy Whipped Mascarpone Cream

Mascarpone is a type of Italian soft cheese that is made with very high fat cream. It has the consistency of cream cheese but tastes completely different and can be enjoyed both in sweet and savoury dishes. Mascarpone is perhaps most famously used in the Italian dessert tiramisu.

This easy whipped mascarpone cream came to me by a happy accident, but it tasted so good that I decided it was a keeper. I needed whipped cream but only had mascarpone, so I worked with what I had.

Whipped mascarpone commonly includes whipped cream, but I used a bit of milk instead to loosen the cheese. Combined with a bit of sugar and vanilla extract, the result is a dense, rich and creamy blend that tastes insanely deliciously. You might just find yourself eating the whole bowl!
