I was making a recipe for a Spring Risotto, and I realized that I did not have mascarpone cheese! I surfed the internet and found this substitute worked like a charm-- at less than half the cost.
|1||(8 ounce) package cream cheese|
|¼||cup heavy whipping cream|
|2½||tablespoons sour cream|
Combine well and use in recipes calling for Mascarpone cheese. NOTE: Do not substitute low fat cream cheese or sour cream!
