  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese (250 grams)
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, seeded
  • 1 cup light cream, chilled


  • In a medium sized bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix with a spatula or wooden spoon.
  • Slowly add chilled light cream, continue whisking.
  • Set aside until ready for serving (or use).



  • Make sure the mascarpone cheese is cold (i.e. straight out of the refrigerator).
  • If you can, use a vanilla bean for more intense flavor.  Otherwise, substitute it with vanilla extract.
  • You can use double cream instead of light cream.
