Lime Curd + Mascarpone Cream Fruit Dip

I'm a huge fan of anything with lime in it!  When I was in culinary school I was given a recipe for lime curd that can't possibly be any better!!!!  Some lemon and lime curd recipes have a tendency to taste "eggy" and I'm not a fan of that!  This recipe is fresh, tart, sweet and buttery!!!!  It was my brother's birthday on Sunday and the menu was fish and pork tacos.  So I decided to make a side dish/dessert that would be a lovely compliment to the meal!  I made the lime curd and added some sweetened mascarpone cream cheese to it!  The combination was absolute perfection!  Creamy, silky, sweet & slightly tart PERFECTION!!!!  It was so good I'm already planning on using this combo in other recipes!!!!  Look for them soon!

Beat together:
2 eight oz containers mascarpone cream cheese
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
Add and mix thoroughly:
1 cup lime curd (recipe here)
Store in a clean container in the fridge until ready to use!

What a yummy way to make eating fruit even more delicious. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link your fruit dip up.

I so wish I had seen this before I went to the store just barely - it would go perfect with tomorrow's dinner. Oh well, Monday it is!! P.S. I can't believe how productive you're being like 10 seconds after giving birth! Hope that means you're feeling good!
