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
tablespoons sour cream


Combine well and use in recipes calling for Mascarpone cheese. NOTE: Do not substitute low fat cream cheese or sour cream!
