This is a fantastic thermomix recipe: the mascarpone cheese! When my friend Gianni told me about it, I hardly believed it.
Come on, I said, how can you do your home-made mascarpone? You usually go to a supermarket and buy it! Surprisingly, I've found the recipe on cookaround and I immediately tried it. The recipe is by Senior Cookino who wrote: "Here is a pretty good recipe to make your own mascarpone. I've tried it and, apart from calories, it is really a superb recipe."
Well, I did not have any doubt about calories :) but can you imagine how different will be preparing a Tiramisù Cake or a Strawberry Tiramisu Cake, a Mascarpone Cake Filling or the lovely Chocolate Balls, the Wild Berry Cheesecake or the Puff Pastry Cake with Hazelnuts and Almonds using your home-made mascarpone??
Let me know what do you think about it!

How to prepare the Thermomix Homemade Mascarpone Cheese RecipePut all the ingredients in the bowl. 12 Min. 90°C Speed 1.
Let it get cold in a fresh place until it thickens.
Now let the mixture filter. Pour it on a napkin placed over a bowl. Keep it refrigerated for 15 hours in the bottom part of your fridge.
What remains inside the bowl is mascarpone. You must preserve it in a container closed with lid.
