¼cup powdered (icing) sugar(use gluten free if needed)
1cup(250 grams) mascarpone
Whisk the cream and powdered sugar until soft peaks form
In a small bowl, gently mix together the mascarpone cheese and vanilla.
Add mascarpone to softly whipped cream and continue to whisk until the mixture thickens and firm peaks form. Be careful not to over beat or the mixture could split.
Use immediately or refrigerate until needed.
When making this recipe it is very important not to over beat the cream. Mascarpone has a high fat content and can curdle very easily. To avoid this, stop whipping as soon as you seen the mixture thicken. Check the mixture then beat a little more if needed.I hope you enjoyed learning how to make mascarpone with me, it is one of my tastiest treats!
