One of the most mispronounced gourmet food items is mascarpone cheese. Most people pronounce it mar scap pone. It's really closer to mass car po nay. So, I was looking for a recipe to use up the mascarpone cheese I'd bought on a whim two weeks ago when I came on this one at (gasp!) the home of the enemy of all cheese sandwiches everywhere, Food and Wine magazine online. Much as I'd like to hate them, the recipe really works. And, it really works if you cut the oil completely and use agave nectar like I did. Most importantly, it works if you makes cupcakes or cake. They were really yummy, with enough nutmeg and cinnamon to make the house smell like winter cookie baking time.
