Balsmic and coffe glazed Marcarpone cheesecake

Alex Callegari


The Coffee and Balsamic glaze give this dessert a wonderful balance of sweet and tart flavors without overpowering the subtle tones of the mascarpone cheesecake.
One of my favorite deserts. I like to accompany it with fresh strawberries and Whipped cream.
