Friday, May 24, 2013

Ingredients (8 pers) :

 Two 8 oz boxes of cream cheese, room temperature,
One 6 oz box of mascarpone cheese, room temperature,
2 tbsp heavy whipping cream (or sour cream),
1 cup running honey,
2 tbsp lemon juice,
1 tsp vanilla extract,
1 and
½ cup different chopped dried fruits (figs, apricots, golden raisins),
½ cup crushed pistachios.


In a large bowl, using electric mixer beat cream cheese until smooth.

Add heavy whipping cream and mascarpone and beat until all cheese is combined.

Pour honey into the bowl with cheese and run the mixer until all the ingredients become one smooth cream, about 3 minutes.

Add vanilla, beat for one minute, and add lemon juice. Once again run the mixer for about two minutes.

Add chopped dried fruits. Mix gently with spatula.

Line a square dish with a plastic foil, overhanging it beyond dish walls. Pour in the cheese mix, spread it evenly and smooth  with a spatula. Sprinkle with pistachios, gently cover with the overhanging foil, and freeze for at least 8-12 hours.

Take from the freezer about 15 minutes before serving. Cut slices and serve when it is slightly soft but still frozen.
