Mascarpone cheese is a soft Italian cheese that is a delicately flavored triple cream cheese. Often used in the same fashion as whipped cream, it is an important ingredient in Tiramisu. Mascarpone is velvety soft, slightly acidic, and expensive. Since it is highly perishable it is recommended to use it soon after you purchase it.
