Raspberry-Cream Cheese Tarts

Raspberry-Cream Cheese Tarts Recipe
Oxmoor House
Mascarpone, Italy's version of cream cheese, is a sweet, delicate triple-blended cheese made from cow's milk that is often used in both sweet and savory dishes. Here, we used only a small amount and stretched it with cream cheese to get the richness of the mascarpone with reduced calories and fat. Store the remaining mascarpone in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
