If you have never had mascarpone cheese, I can best describe it as a cross between Cream Cheese and Crème Fraîche. It has a very mild flavor and is very smooth and creamy. The best part – it has zero carbs! It’s incredibly versatile, I use it in so many dishes, both sweet and savory. I use it in making fat bombs, to make sauces extra creamy, tarts and I use it in frostings.
