Mascarpone cheese is available at Italian groceries; if you can't find it, substitute cream cheese.

    I've been making this recipe for years. It's absolutely delicious. I've used variants with cheese when marscapone wasn't available from cream cheese to muenster. I also have used fig spread I've found when whole figs were not available. These are great hor d'oeuvres for small parties. The mint is very subtle with the prosciutto.
