The directions for this are misleading; they should read 'gently mix together the cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla'. Beating the cheese causes it to separate. Even thought I am an accomplished cook, mascarpone cheese is not easily found and so I have not ever used it.When I found this recipe I thought it would make a great topping for a lemon chiffon cake I was making for a party, and since I follow directions to the letter proceeded to BEAT the cheese...... so I ended up with $6 of cheese down the drain and a concoction that looked like ricotta! The flavor was good, but I thought a tad sweet so I would recommend cutting the sugar by 1/2 a cup. I ended up using this recipe but with cream cheese (and not as much sugar) and it turned out great for my cake.
