Here's an inexpensive way of introducing mascarpone Cheese in your recipes. Needs just two ingredients and a bit of patience to let the cream set.


8 Oz Heavy Whipping Cream

1 tbsp Vinegar


  • Pour heavy cream in to a sauce pan and bring that to a boil.
  • Add vinegar in to cream once that comes to a boil.
  • You will see cream will get a bit of thickening,
  • Now turn the heat off.
  • Now put the saucepan in to ice cold water.
  • Allow it to sit for 15 to 20 mts.
  • Now line a sieve with a cheesecloth.
  • Put one empty bowl underneath the strainer.
  • Now pour cream in to cheesecloth.
  • Cover the cream and put that in to refrigerator for 24 hours.
  • After 24 hour the cream will set and you will get little bit of whey from the cream in to the bowl that you placed below the strainer.
  • Use to make desserts or pastas!


  • Make sure that you heat the cream over medium heat.
  • Continue to stir it to avoid sticking to the pan.

Hi Madhura, I went thru many Mascarpone cheese recepies and all the ingredients and procedures remains the same as your recepie, and it is called MASCARPONE CHEESE AND NOT PANEER. want to share with all instead of heavy whipping cream which is not available in India, I replaced with Milk cream which you collected every time you boil the fresh milk, and it turned out very well, I could used to well for my cake dressing. Thank you Madhura for your recepie

Hello Madhura, I am sorry but this is not a mascarpone cheese. This is a different form of paneer.
