Author Notes: About a year ago I posted a recipe titled Pudding That Tastes Like Mom's Cheesecake, a take on her cheesecake recipe in a no bake form. I played around with it a bit to come up with this one. It's extremely creamy and rich and takes no time to make. A little goes a long way! - inpatskitchen
Serves 8 to 10 (?)
- 8 ounces cold whipping cream
- 1/4 teaspoon powdered gelatin
- 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 8 ounces sour cream
- 3/4 cups dark amber maple syrup plus more for drizzling
- Chopped pecans for serving
- Place the whipping cream in a cold bowl and sprinkle with the gelatin. Whip the cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate while you move on.
- In a large mixing bowl cream the mascarpone, cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and maple syrup. Stir in the sour cream thoroughly. Fold in the whipped cream and refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
- When ready to serve, scoop some pudding into small dessert dishes, sprinkle with a few chopped pecans and drizzle with a little maple syrup.
