Strawberry Mascarpone Tart


Every Friday I will be featuring a recipe I try from another food blogger.  I have found that one of the most fulfilling parts about blogging is connecting with other foodies who love food just as much as I do.  Today’s recipe is from Elise Bauer’s blog Simply Recipes.  Some of you may be thinking, what on earth are you doing making a strawberry tart THIS time of year?

To all you poor people in 30 degree weather, I do apologize, but it is warm and sunny down in the Florida area (come visit!), and strawberries right now are not only local, fresh, and beatiful, but they are also dirt cheap.  I have been buying 2 pound boxes for $3.88 (score!)

So I have been making lots of strawberry things lately.

Ingredients

  • 1 recipe pie crust pate sucree, fully baked
  • 1 lb strawberries
  • 1 tbsp orange zest divided in half
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 8 oz mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup confectioner's sugar

Instructions

  • Half an hour before assembling your tart, slice up your strawberries, and place them in a bowl with half of the orange zest, and the sugar. Stir it up so it can macerate (soften).
  • Stir together the mascarpone, confectioner’s sugar, the rest of the orange zest, lemon juice, and vanilla until everything is incorporated consistently. Take a little taste of the stuff…isn’t it divine?
  • Spread the mascarpone out onto the room temperature tart shell.
  • Layer on the macerated strawberries, and it’s ready to eat. The tart should be consumed within a day or two because the strawberries go downhill pretty quickly.
