Sweet Honey and Mascarpone Dessert

  • PrepTime: 5 Mins
  • CookTime: 0 Mins
  • TotalTime: 5 Mins


  1. 8 ounces Mascarpone
  2. 2 to 3 tablespoons honey
  3. 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  4. 1 teaspoon​ lemon zest
  5. Garnish: citrus peel spiral.


  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Check honey consistency: if the honey is too thick to whisk into the mascarpone, heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until it's runny.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, mix the mascarpone, honey, cinnamon, and lemon zest until smooth. For an airy, whipped spread, use an immersion blender.
  4. Chill for at least 3 hours for a firmer texture or serve right away at room temperature for a creamier one.
  5. Pour in dessert glasses and garnish with a lemon zest spiral.
  6. Enjoy!


  1. Top 1/4 cup of it with chopped strawberries and garnish with sliced almonds or chopped mint.
  2. Spread onto vanilla cookies or graham crackers.
  3. Use it on cupcakes for frosting, but do serve immediately or keep refrigerated; otherwise, the frosting will soften and melt.
  4. Thin out the Mascarpone with whole-cream and pour over fruit salad, fresh figs, or large slices of fruit such as grilled apricots, peaches, or apples.
  5. Put a dollop on your French toast, pancakes, and waffles. Add a drizzle of extra honey and decorate with cinnamon.
  6. Make parfaits with honey mascarpone by layering with chopped fruit and granola. Refrigerate for an hour before serving.
  7. Serve a slice of vanilla or lemon pound cake with a dollop of chilled honey mascarpone. Grate extra zest on top.
  8. In dessert glasses, cube vanilla or lemon pound cake, cover with honey mascarpone, add extra honey, and crush vanilla cookies for crunch.
