Have you ever tried mascarpone cheese? It’s a smooth Italian spread, similar to cream cheese, but with a more buttery flavor. I buy it almost every week to spread on low carb bagels and English muffins, but there are lots of delicious mascarpone recipes to try beyond just spreading it.
Most grocery stores carry mascarpone cheese, but it’s also surprisingly easy to make homemade mascarpone at home. You need just 2 ingredients and can use it in all these mascarpone cheese recipes!
