    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.

    Ingredients
    Makes: 1 cup mascarpone cheese

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

    Directions
    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.

    This didn't work out for me. I followed the method, yet, all I got was a mayonnaise-like consistency. I had to use much more than 1/8 tsp. I will try this again, though. Thank you for the recipe.  -  21 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
