Looking for a recipe to use up Mascarpone Cheese...

I have an 8 oz tub of mascarpone to use up before it goes bad. With all of the lemon threads here, I am thinking it would be good in some kind of lemon tart (like a lemon cream cheese tart) but I don't have a recipe.

If you have a simple dessert recipe using mascarpone, please share.

Tiramisu is always good, or cannolis

If you have some sliced almonds and a poundcake around also some apricot preserves you can mix the preserves with a say 3 tablespoons of Amaretto liqueur, set aside, toast the almonds then toast the pound cake you've cut into slices..Place 1 slice of pound cake on plate, spoon on the mascarpone on top then araange the remaining slices of cake offset atop the bottom slices of cake, now spoon over the apricot mixture, sprinkle with the toasted almonds and serve..I've done this with strawberry opreserves, black cherry, let your imagination run free.. Hope this helps a little..I have subbed mascarpone for cream cheese in some things. We love it.
