Recipe for Maple Mascarpone Whipped Cream

Prep Time: 15-20 Minutes (including bowl chilling time)

Cooking Time: 5 Minutes

How to Make Whipped Cream:

Take your clean mixer bowl and whisk attachments (or beaters if using a hand mixer) and place them into your freezer for at least 15 minutes while you gather the rest of your ingredients.

Ingredients for Whipped Cream:

  • 3/4 cup Heavy or Manufacturing Cream (at least 40% or higher fat)
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Brown Sugar, lightly packed
  • Pinch of Kosher Salt
  • 1.5 teaspoons Maple Extract
  • 1/2 plus 1/8th Teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese (room temperature)

Place all ingredients at once into your chilled mixing bowl, and whip on high until stiff peaks. Caution: Do not over whip, otherwise you will end up with butter. (See savory notes at the bottom).

Yield: 6-8 Servings

Calories: Oh come on, it's whipped cream... don't ask

Storage: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 days

Savory Notes:

Not only is this maple mascarpone whipped cream great for sweet desserts, but it can also be transformed into a savory buttery spread for warm bread or a topping for soup.

To make a savory buttery spread, simply omit the sugar from the recipe and whisk a little longer until it reaches a spreadable consistency. Then slather it on your favorite warm dinner roll or breakfast toast for a delicious addition to your meal.

For a savory soup topping, omit the brown sugar and transfer the cream to a piping bag with an open star tip. Use it to top a roasted butternut squash soup for a flavorful and elegant touch.

So whether you're satisfying your sweet tooth or adding a savory twist to your meals, this versatile maple mascarpone whipped cream is the perfect addition to your culinary repertoire.
