I’m all for making complicated, elaborate desserts when the amount of effort put forth corresponds to the finished product but I’m more in love with desserts that look beautiful and taste great even though they’ve taken very little time to prepare. Such is the case with Raspberry Mascarpone Pudding. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a simpler recipe anywhere. There’s no cooking involved and all that’s required to make this dish is a handful of ingredients and a food processor, yet the end result is individual serving dessert cups that are not only delicious, but stunning in appearance.

The problem with a lot of desserts is that they’re just too heavy, but Raspberry Mascarpone Pudding is rich without being heavy and has a tart, slightly sweet flavor that makes it a great palate cleanser after a big meal. Even if you’re not one to regularly indulge in dessert, you’ll love this pudding because it’s so light. Raspberries give this dessert its signature flavor but it’s the mascarpone cheese that makes it silky-smooth and luxurious with some subtle contrasting texture imparted by the almond flour and raspberry seeds. It’s nothing less than heaven on your tongue!

To make Raspberry Mascarpone Pudding you’ll need a small (8 ounce) tub of mascarpone cheese. Mascarpone cheese is an Italian cream cheese that’s perhaps best known as an ingredient in tiramisu. It has a thick, milky, slightly sweet taste that is very similar to British clotted cream. Most grocery stores carry mascarpone cheese nowadays and you can usually find it the same dairy case the holds the specialty cheeses.
