Creme di Mascarpone

Stolen from one of the local chefs here in our little town.

Creme di Mascarpone
Serves 6
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 3 TB fine white sugar* (fine texture, not classy ohh la la)
  • 1 1/3 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 2-3 TB rum
  • Garnishes
Beat egg yolks and sugar until pale and fluffy. Fold the mascarpone into the yolks, a little at a time, until fully combined. Stir in the orange zest and rum.

Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold into the yolk mixture. Fold whites into the yolk/cheese mixture. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Garnish with shaved dark chocolate, fresh berries and light, crisp cookies!

*The sugar does have a vanilla bean split and stored in the sugar does have some vanilla essence. If you want, feel free to add a drop or two of vanilla extra for further awesome flavor.
