Mascarpone Cheese and Fig Preserve
This is one of my favorite recipes for a great and very easy dessert.
Mascarpone Cheese - you'll find it in a plastic container about the size of a cream cheese.
Fig Preserve - Harder to find...try a gourmet store or a higher end wine shop with a market.
1. Place all the Mascarpone cheese into a bowl.
2. Mix in 1/2 of the fig preserve (you can adjust, but start with a little and add to taste). Less is usually more.
Mix well and place in fridge for an hour or so.
Serve with bread sliced into bruschetta sized slices. Toast them if you like.
This is great for dessert or breakfast.
