"I have no doubt this is delicous as is; I haven't made it yet but plan to make it for Thanksgiving. Has anyone ever tried it with mascarpone cheese? If so, do you recommend I substitute it ounce for ounce and would it it completely alter the taste of the dish or maybe just 'enhance' it (if that's possible:-) I just LOVE mascarpone cheese in desserts. Thanks!"
