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.
