Mascarpone and Calvados Fondue
Mascarpone, a creamy fresh cheese, stars in the Italian dessert tiramisu. But it's also very asty in other desserts!
In a saucepan, combine mascarpone and cream. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cheese is melted and mixture is bubbly.
Stir in Calvados, vanilla, and nutmeg. Remove from heat. Pour into 1 or more fondue pots and place over heating source.
Serve with apple slices.
Eau de Vie
Dozens of different varieties of apples go into the production of Calvados, an oak barrel-aged brandy that originated in the Normandy region of France. Other clear fruit brandies, such as pear or plum, can be added to dessert sauces or even cheese fondue.
