Hi, I'm Heather Bertinetti. You're watching eHow.com. Today, I want to talk to you about a quick garnish using mascarpone cream. Mascarpone is just a sweetened Italian cream cheese. It's a little denser of a product, and it has a silkier, smoother finish. Just like you would whip cream, you're going to use a stand-up KitchenAid mixer and now this is 16 ounces, I'm only going to use half of this so it's eight ounces. We'll put that in the mixer, great. Just set the rest aside. Now I'm going to turn this on the lowest setting. To that I'm going to add half a cup of powdered sugar and one tablespoon of vanilla extract. At this point I'm going to stop the bowl and with the spatula I'm going to scrape down the sides and make sure everything gets smooth and incorporated. And that's it, mascarpone already is a pretty dense product so you really don't have to give it much whipping. This is what it looks like when it comes off the mixer. So my favorite way to serve this is I just spoon out just a little dollop right in the middle of the bowl and I use some fresh strawberries right over the top and I just drizzle a little bit of honey. And that's it. Thanks for watching. Catch me again. I'm Heather Bertinetti on eHow.com. Enjoy guys.
