Made this the other day as a filling in my Dark Chocolate Oreo cake. It was "heaven on a spoon" (as described by my husband).
BAILEY'S MASCARPONE FILLING
8 oz. Mascarpone cheese
1/2 Cup Heavy whipping cream
1/2 Cup Bailey's Irish Cream liquor
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 Cup plus 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar (forgot this in original posting!!)
Whip all in mixer using whisk attachment until mixture forms medium peaks. Refrigerate for at least an hour to let cheese reset. Use as filling or eat it as a mousse.
It's definitely an adult treat as the alcohol stays in the cream. And the cake does need to be refrigerated once filled with this mixture as it does contain cream and the cheese. I put some shaved dark chocolate on top of the cream inside the cake. YUM!
OH Sheesh - I forgot an ingredient!!!! ALSO - 1/4 plus 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar!! I've changed the recipe above.
Anne - I didn't try piping it - it's a bit on the softer side so I don't know how well it would hold up.
Deah - It's a pretty mild flavor, other than the Bailey's - I think I would go with chocolate, vanilla, or white. I don't think it would match well with fruit flavors. My mom asked for the recipe so she could use it in her cream puffs! Now THAT would be good! :)
