Mascarpone is known as the “Italian Cream Cheese.” This high-fat cheese is produced like yogurt, by adding a culture to the cream of cow’s milk. Mascarpone has a naturally sweet taste that makes it popular in desserts. Its soft and creamy texture, comparable to a thick whipped cream, makes it easy to spread.
