21 Delicious Mascarpone Recipes That You Will Love!

You’ll find mascarpone recipes, the Italian cream cheese, snuggled next to the crème fraîche at the grocery store. And you might have the best intentions for using its mildly sweet, subtle, and refreshing flavor. But more often than not, the container gets used once for a well-deserved dollop before wasting away next to the pickles. After thinking of our favorite restaurant dishes and asking some of Team Epi’s blogger friends, we found a lot of dreamy ways to use that mascarpone (before it grows legs and walks away). These holiday recipes of creamy cheese can be so much more than merely a topping for espresso-soaked ladyfingers (even though there’s always a time and place for tiramisu). Dip into mascarpone’s sweet and savory sides with these dessert recipes that cover everything from parfaits to pasta. This sumptuously thick and soft Italian cheese works in sweet and savory recipes alike.

21. Mascarpone Toast with Burst Tomatoes Recipe

Mascarpone Toast with Burst Tomatoes Recipe

A simple snack or breakfast recipe for delicious whips mascarpone toast with burst tomatoes! Guys, let’s talk about burst tomatoes. I’ve been eating tomatoes-on-toast for ages, but I usually do it with fresh tomatoes. Only, the thing is, this time of year… tomatoes kinda suck. One important thing: use a fork to gently prick and smoosh down the tomatoes while they cook so the hot juice doesn’t blast you in the face when you bite into them. Lesson learned. Oh! And make sure you use the *good* olive oil when you make this. It just takes a little drizzle but it’s totally worth it. If you’ve been hoarding some fancy sea salt in your pantry, now is the time to use it. The black sesame seeds and red pepper flakes are optional, but I like them because they are pretty.

11. Strawberry Lemon Mascarpone Mousse

Strawberry Lemon Mascarpone Mousse

Slightly sweet whipped lemon mascarpone mousse is layered with tart strawberry puree for a creamy and decadent summer dessert! Another thing that makes me a little crazy is when I don’t get to the fruit before it goes bad. I love fruit so much that I always buy too much of it with the best intentions, and then we get too busy and don’t use it quickly enough and it hurts my heart to have to throw it away. I like to do mine in layers, starting with the strawberry puree on the bottom. You certainly don’t have to do that if you don’t want to. You could load up your serving dish with mousse and then pile the puree on top, or put all the puree on the bottom so you have to dig for it like hidden treasure. Do whatever makes you happy. The gorgeous color of the puree might be my favorite thing. It’s this deep red with almost magenta tones and I want it as a nail polish color.

10. Spaghetti with Mascarpone, Meyer Lemon, Spinach, and Hazelnuts

Spaghetti with Mascarpone, Meyer Lemon, Spinach, and Hazelnuts

Mascarpone is a soft, scoopable, sweet cheese (not sugar sweet, but mild and milky with just the tiniest bit of tang). The Meyer lemon has that same quality: sweeter than a regular lemon but still tart. They make a great sauce together, lighter than a typical cream sauce but still silky and rich. We had two encounters with mascarpone cheese in pasta recently. One was seeing this tagliatelle with spinach, mascarpone, and Parmesan over on Jamie Oliver’s website; the other was catching the tail end of a British cooking show where the host was making mascarpone-lemon spaghetti. This is our version, which borrows a bit from both but has the bright flavor of Meyer lemon plus toasted hazelnuts, which turned out to be the best ingredient of all. These dessert recipes or holiday recipes or Mascarpone Recipes are the perfect meal for lunch or weeknight dinner.

8. Fresh Strawberry Pie with Mascarpone Filling

Fresh Strawberry Pie with Mascarpone Filling

Fresh Strawberry Pie is so fresh and delicious, a fast and easy dessert made with a creamy Mascarpone & Cream filling and then topped with fresh strawberries. The perfect way to welcome Summer. I love pastry crust dessert recipes so I really didn’t have any desire to make a cookie crust for this no-bake filling. And I also decided not to add any gelatine to firm up the filling. I did it my way by making a Stabilized Whipped Cream. These holiday recipes filling is thick, creamy, and not too sweet! Just the way we like it! In order to make a really thick extra creamy filling with no Gelatine, you have to combine the whipping or whole cream, mascarpone, and a little powdered sugar, and beat it all together until it is extremely thick.

5. Mascarpone Cheese Scones

Mascarpone Cheese Scones

Mascarpone Cheese Scones of holiday recipes have a subtle orange and butter flavor. The texture is soft and dense inside with flaky, crispy outside and corners. I had leftover mascarpone cheese when I picked up ingredients to make Turkey Lasagna. However, mascarpone cheese doesn’t go in lasagna.  Ricotta cheese does. I picked up the wrong item at the store and now I have a huge tub of mascarpone begging to be used. Coincidently, you can substitute mascarpone for Greek yogurt, sour cream, and buttermilk in most Mascarpone recipes. I sued heavy cream, mascarpone, and butter. As a result, these scones are soft and decadent. They have a dense, moist texture inside and are coated with a flaky outside. In addition, I stirred in orange zest and orange juice. They didn’t have an overpowering orange flavor – just a hint, just enough.

Are those sad, brown, and black, overripe bananas sitting on your counter silently judging you? Don’t dare throw them out! They are perfect for my banana bread with mascarpone cream cheese. I have a confession … Sometimes, I buy bananas just to let them go brown so I can make banana bread. I can’t help it! It’s just so dang delicious. You can even peel the bananas and freeze them so you can make cook with them later on at your leisure. Besides having them at the ready for banana bread, they’re also great in pancakes, muffins, and smoothies. Mascarpone is a buttery, double or triple cream cheese made from cow’s milk. It’s ivory-colored, soft and similar to butter inconsistency. I love the flavor and spreadability. You can substitute regular cream cheese if you like. Just make sure it’s room temperature.

1. Mascarpone Tart Recipe

Mascarpone Tart Recipe

This Mango Mascarpone tart was baked a couple of weeks back though, this is just the first chance I’ve had to post it up. I made these tart holiday recipes because I had some mascarpone leftover from a cheesecake and I had a mango that needed using up, so I got to thinking about what I could bake with them and this is what I came up with. However, by the time I got around to baking it the mascarpone was past its use-by date and the mango had gone way too soft. So I went out and bought a mango and more mascarpone, which kind of defied the whole reason I was making it in the first place but once I get a bake in my head I have to make it! And I’m glad I followed through with this tart because it was absolutely delicious. The creamy mascarpone combined with the sweet and tropical-tasting mango is just a match made in heaven.
