BAKE ME: Mama’s Mascarpone Cheesecake

Happy Thursday everyone! Sorry for the lag in posts. We were out of the country in London and Brussels on a mini Eurotrip adventure. I cannot wait to share it all with you!

As I mentioned in my last post, we hosted several friends over for Shavuot. It was a cheese filled extravaganza!

Every year my mother makes an AMAZING Mascarpone Cheesecake. It is one of my favorite things she makes! I never attempted to make it myself because it always seemed so complicated. This year I finally asked for the recipe and what I found was that it was pretty simple if you tweaked it a bit! The recipe actually came from Epicurious (LINK HERE).

As I was cooking two entire meals, two days in a row, I decided I needed a shortcut on the cheesecake. Instead of making dough and baking a crust, I bought two Keebler Ready Crust Graham Pie Crusts. To be honest, I didn’t even taste the difference! For the ever important cheese, I used Trader Joe’s Mascarpone Cheese and Philadelphia Cream Cheese. The cheesecake was so decadent. It was cool and light but not overwhelmingly sweet. The perfect summer dessert!

Next time I am going to top it with a homemade raspberry sauce. My mouth is drooling just thinking about it!
