Mascarpone cheese is silky, creamy, slightly tangier than sweet cream & perfect for a diverse range of luxurious desserts. Most people have tried mascarpone in tiramisu, but there are many other sweet ways to use mascarpone cheese. Here are some luscious desserts incorporating mascarpone cheese you can add to your menu that are sure to be a HIT this summer!
Lemon Mascarpone Layer Cake
Sweet mascarpone cheese pairs perfectly with tangy citrus. Elegantly layer lemon syrup & cake for a light trifle-like texture & an assertive citrus flavor.
Fresh Fig & Honey Tart
Create a beautiful & simple tart with fresh figs soaked in honey for an earthy sweetness that perfectly grounds the lemon-flavored mascarpone layer. The figs add a rustic, interesting pop to the classic cheesecake filling that will impress your restaurant customers. For extra flair, garnish with honey before serving.
Take the classic coffee-flavored Italian dessert to the next level with a rich cheesecake ringed with traditional ladyfinger cookies. Next, top a chocolate cookie crust with a delicious mascarpone filling, baked & dusted over with cocoa powder. Spike whipped cream with coffee liquor for a cute finishing touch & additional kick.
