Waterloo, WI, September 28, 2019—This year, combine simplicity and bounty when you get together with family and friends to celebrate autumn and the harvest season. Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese provides ideas for creating your own Autumn Dessert Cheese Board featuring Mascarpone cheese. That way, you can spend minimal time in the kitchen and maximum time with those who matter to you. Artisanal Mascarpone Cheese from Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese complements the many dessert flavors of fall. Everything from caramel apples to pumpkin and pecans can be paired with the sweet creamy flavor of Crave Brothers Mascarpone.
To assemble your own custom-designed Autumn Dessert Cheese Board, start with Crave Brothers Mascarpone. Its sweet flavor and velvety texture add notes of luxury to a variety of autumn desserts. Mascarpone also complements snacks like spiced walnuts or pecans, shelled pistachios, roasted almonds, and dried fruit nibbles such as dried cranberries, apricots or figs.
Rich, luxurious Crave Brothers Mascarpone is also great when paired with fresh berries, and it makes a sweet creamy dip for biscotti and thin, spiced cookies such as nutmeg or ginger snaps. Fresh apple slices with caramel dipping sauce rise to the next level when they’re topped with a bit of Mascarpone. To create a party mood with your Fall Dessert Cheese Board, make mini desserts such as Pumpkin Tiramisu Parfaits in small parfait glasses or tall shot glasses. To make the parfaits, dip mini vanilla wafer cookies in caramel coffee liqueur and add them to the bottom of the glasses, followed by a pumpkin layer that combines canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, whipped cream and granulated sugar. Top the parfaits with Crave Brothers Mascarpone, mixed with a bit of powdered sugar. Refrigerate the parfaits before serving.
