Cinco de Mayo Margarita Pie
Waterloo, WI, April 14, 2020—Bring this year’s Cinco de Mayo celebration right into your own home with the splurge-worthy Crave Brothers Margarita Mascarpone Pie. With this pie as a dessert, you don’t need parades or parties to observe the May 5th holiday. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the victory of Mexico’s army over French forces in the 1862 Battle of Puebla. Typical party fare in the U.S. pays tribute to Mexico’s food and culture. Margarita cocktails complement popular foods like tacos, salsa, guacamole, burritos, and bean casseroles topped with melted cheese.
The Margarita Mascarpone Pie creates a sweet ending to the celebration. It features fresh, creamy Mascarpone from Crave Brothers Farmstead Cheese. All you need for the pie are a few simple ingredients: pre-made graham cracker crust, a jar of lime curd, margarita mix (with or without tequila) or lime juice, and optional garnishes. Fold the lime curd and margarita mix into room temperature Crave Brothers Mascarpone Cheese. Add the pie filling to the graham cracker crust, chill the pie, and garnish it before serving. We suggest whipped cream, fresh lime peel and kosher salt.
Crave Brothers Farmstead Classics Mascarpone has earned more than 36 awards at numerous prestigious cheese competitions. It enhances a variety of desserts with its velvety texture and sweet cream flavor.
