This frosting uses the fluffy Mascarpone sweet cheese and mixes it with heavy cream and sugar for an irresistible layer for the Italian dessert, tiramisu.

How to Make It

Step 1

Stir mascarpone cheese in a large bowl just until blended.

Step 2

Beat cream and vanilla at low speed with an electric mixer until foamy; increase speed to medium-high, and gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. (Do not overbeat or cream will become grainy.) Gently fold whipped cream mixture into mascarpone cheese. Use immediately.

I mistakenly added the mascarpone to the cream at the beginning rather than at the end and it still turned out okay. Simply delicious.
