What to do with Mascarpone

I made Tiramisu here the other day. The Tiramisu got perfect (in my opinion). But here afterwards I have one cup of Maspcarpone left. I really do not know what do to with it. So therefore I would like to ask you if you have got any proposals what to do with the Mascarpone I have left?

Take small croissants, split in half, spread both sides with mascarpone, spread with raspberry compote, shave dark Callibaut chocolate over it, put the top back on, put in 375 oven for about 5 minutes. Yum. Or stuffed French Toast.

Oh my God....there are A LOT of recipes with mascarpone...What do you prefer? Sweet or salt? Now I'll give you some titles, you tell me what you prefer....
Appetizer with two cheeses
Saumon rolled
Fettuccine (pasta) with a mascarpone and shrimp cream
Risotto with green apple and lettuce
Tagliatelle with mascarpone and mushrooms
Turkey in puff pastry
A cup wit a mascarpone and chocolate cream

Split two peaches in half. Remove the stone. Melt a bit of butter and brush it on the cut sides of the peaches. Grill the peaches till aromatic and lightly browned. While still warm, spoon a teaspoon of mascarpone into each peach half. Drizzle with a bit of honey, sprinkle with orange zest and freshly grated nutmeg.

It's a wonderfully light dessert I think you'll enjoy.

I really like your idea Lorraine. I wouldn't use that crappy Canadian chocolate though Seriously though, I think your idea would be awesome with some gianduja, which Scharffenderger have recently seen fit to put in my grocery store to tempt me out of another $10 of hard earned every time I pass it. Love that stuff.

Like the peach idea a lot too, although we're about a week away from ours being very good.

Verablue, that grilled peach idea sounds fantastic! To bad I can't find any decent peaches around here. The only ones I've had are bitter.

I remember as a kid, going to the Peach Festival in Porter, OK, and picking peaches by the bushel out in the fields. They were HUGE, bigger than a baseball, but not quite as big as a softball, and dead ripe. I must have ate 2 or 3 right there in the fields, with hot peach juice squirting out from around my lips and dribbling down my face. I have yet to get anything close to that.
