Sugar Free Mascarpone
Mascarpone is not a cheese that we eat on a daily basis.
I have a hard time finding Mascarpone my local grocery store. However, I see it all of the time in desserts. To be honest, I always thought that is was more of a dessert cream filling than a cheese.
This Mascarpone recipe is the second part of a series of three related posts.
I am working my way towards making a whole Sugar Free Tiramisu. I recently featured the the Lady Fingers recipe and will soon feature the end product- Tiramisu when I combine it all together. on.
Mascarpone is actually an easy recipe to make.
You only need a few ingredients to make it with. However, Mascarpone is such a vital part of so many desserts including Tiramisu. The Mascarpone acts like the mortar which keeps the other ingredients together and balances out the other flavors while it does it.
This recipe calls for heavy cream.

How to make Sugar Free Mascarpone
You will need a cheesecloth or similar item (coffee filters, paper towels of quality etc).
- Place your cream in a sauce pan and heat to a simmer (180 degrees if using a thermometer). After about 4 minutes, stir in the lemon juice and allow to simmer for another 3-4 minutes.
- Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sugar alternative. Then, allow this cool for 20-15 minutes before the next step. For the next step you will need a strainer/colander, a bowl to sit the strainer over, and your cheesecloth (use double layer if possible).
- Place the strainer/colander over the bowl and line the strainer/colander with the cheesecloth.
- Pour the mixture from the pan into the strainer/colander. Allow this (strainer/colander lined with cheesecloth and with mixture inside) over the bowl to sit in your refrigerator overnight.
