What is Mascarpone Cheese?
For years, mascarpone cheese has been known as an ingredient in Tiramisu. But did you know that it can also be used to create a delicious and versatile whipped cream topping? Mascarpone cheese is a soft and creamy Italian cheese that is made from cream and has a slightly sweet and tangy flavor. It has a higher fat content than regular cream cheese, which gives it a luxurious and silky texture that makes it perfect for desserts and other dishes.
Recipe for Maple Mascarpone Whipped Cream
his recipe for maple mascarpone whipped cream is incredibly easy to make and comes together in just a few minutes. Here's what you'll need:
- 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)
First, chill your mixer bowl and whisk attachments (or beaters if using a hand mixer) in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. Then, place all the ingredients at once into your chilled mixing bowl, and whip on high until stiff peaks form. Be careful not to over whip, or you'll end up with maple mascarpone butter.
This recipe can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. The cream whips up to a slightly stiffer consistency than traditional whipped cream, but without the heavy or overly buttery mouthfeel of buttercream. Not only is it great for topping your favorite desserts, but it can also be used as a 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.
Maple mascarpone whipped cream is a delicious and versatile topping that is easy to make and can be used in a variety of sweet and savory dishes. With its unique flavor and slightly stiffer consistency, it's sure to impress your guests and take your culinary game to the next level.
