Oh, Hay-Seuss. This may be my new favorite dessert. I had a hard time stopping myself from eating the whole thing. Mascarpone is similar to cream cheese, and, like cream cheese, can be used in either sweet or savory applications. To make the cheese work as a dessert, I sweetened it with powdered sugar. I then put the sweetened mascarpone over top of blueberries. The reason I chose blueberries is because I then drizzled some white peach balsamic vinegar over the whole thing. Peaches and blueberries go wonderfully together, but this would also be great with segmented peaches or plums, or with regular balsamic vinegar and strawberries. In all honesty though, I don't think I'll give any of those a try. I don't think the blueberry and peach balsamic vinegar combination can be beaten!
Blueberries with Mascarpone
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 pint blueberries
White peach balsamic vinegar
In a bowl, stir together the mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar until well combined.
- Place most of the blueberries in a separate bowl, reserving a handful with which to garnish the top.
- Top the blueberries with the mascarpone. Place the reserved blueberries on top of the mascarpone.
- Drizzle the blueberries and mascarpone with the white peach balsamic vinegar.
Ryan's rating of Blueberries with Mascarpone: 5. Judging by the way he devoured it, I would say Dominic rated it pretty highly as well.
1 - Awful. If you make this again I'll shove a fork in my eye.
2 - Meh. It's not my favorite, but I won't threaten self-harm if it shows up again.
3 - Good. I wouldn't feel forced to order a pizza behind your back.
4 - Great! I will fight you for the leftovers.
5 - Love it! Make it again tomorrow. Or immediately and I will bathe in it.
