Story Behind this Recipe
Since the best by date on my mascarpone was drawing near, I made these cookies without much thought. I love the flavor and sourness of the mascarpone cheese.
I halved the original amount of butter and substituted it with olive oil to make the cookies lighter. Of course, you can use butter or olive oil entirely.
These cookies are so easy to make since it's all about mixing. Step 4: Mix well to make the dough creamy. Step 5: Use a spatula to even out the dough and to make it less floury. Once the cookies are done, let them cool down thoroughly.
