Mascarpone cheese is an un-aged Italian cream cheese which can be eaten as is on toast with jam or used in baking. Watch this recipe being made in our Allrecipes Mascarpone Cheese Video.


Makes: 1 cup mascarpone cheese

  • 1 litre light cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon tartaric acid

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:1hour resting  ›  Ready in:1hour25min 

  1. Heat up the cream in a double boiler to 85 degrees C (you will need a thermometer for best results). Add tartaric acid and stir 5 minutes until cream starts to break up into curds. If no curds form, add a pinch more tartaric acid but don't add too much or it will be grainy.
  2. Line a colander with cheesecloth or muslin. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the curds to the colander. Fold over the cheesecloth and let drain 1 hour.
  3. Cheese will keep up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
