I have 2 tubs of mascarpone cheese ( unopened ) which had a use by date of June 27 , 2014 . Would it still be safe to use them for baking ? S

Mascarpone is actually very low in moisture compared to ricotta which contains a lovely whey. Because mascarpone is low in moisture, it is slower to spoil. If it hasn't taken on a bitter flavor or off color, it is fine to use.

I agree with ZombbieCupcake. You also will know if it needs to go when you open it. Mascarpone has a sweet smell and milky liquid surrounding it in the tub.If it has broken and is not smooth in texture,it probably is too old.

I would say yes, if you were to them soon. But for health reasons with food "when in doubt throw it out". A day with food poisoning isn't worth saving a few bucks.
