MASCARPONE CHEESE IS A PERFECT ADDITION

Mascarpone cheese is one of our favorite additions to so many recipes. It is a creamy Italian cheese that works beautifully in many types of dishes, especially desserts like tiramisu.

The mascarpone is the ideal complement to the slightly tart, yet subtly sweet fruit in this delicious Wild Berry Parfait.

EXPERT TIP: Mascarpone cheese can be found in the specialty cheese section of most well-stocked supermarkets. If you can’t find it, you can substitute by blending in 1/4 cup of sour cream and 1/4 cup to 1 lb. of softened cream cheese.
