Lemon Honey Mascarpone with Fruit Perfect Cherries

  • Author: Liz
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


A super easy dessert but delicious and pretty enough for company!  Think Valentines Day supper….mascarpone is a creamy Italian cheese that is slightly on the sweet side.  It’s great on toast, so you won’t be wasting any leftover yumminess.


  • 1/2 cup Mascarpone cheese
  • 1 1/2 tbl Lemon Honey (such as American Spoon)
  • 1 cup jarred cherries with syrup (see note below)
  • Optional – Lemon zest for garnish


  1. Combine the mascarpone and the lemon honey in a small bowl.
  2. Place the cherries in a small dish or teacup.  Place a dollop or two of the mascarpone mixture on top.
  3. Garnish with lemon zest if desired.
  4. Enjoy!


I tend to favor American Spoon products – their Lemon Honey is to die for, and their Fruit Perfect Cherries are delicious.  However, Amazon does have other options for Lemon Honey, and the grocery store sells different brands of jarred cherries.  However, do not use maraschino cherries, and if the cherries you purchase are in liquid rather than syrup, combine them with some cherry or cherry berry preserves to add sweetness and texture.
