Mascarpone Tarts with Fresh Berries

Mascarpone Tarts with Fresh Berries

In my house, these mini Mascarpone Tarts with Fresh Berries are simply known as “The Tart”. Hands down, they are the most requested dessert in my house. My kids have them on their birthdays, and it is my go-to dessert when entertaining. And really, what’s not to love about them? Mini Oreo crusts with a creamy mascarpone cheese filling and topped with fresh raspberries and blackberries. Can’t go wrong there. Sweet, but not too sweet, and topped with fresh fruit, so it has to be sort of healthy, right? Work with me here. I’m trying to take the guilt out of the dessert, especially this time of year with all of the chocolates around the house. They are easy, can be made ahead of time and they are oh, so pretty to serve. Best of all, they look like you spent hours slaving away in the kitchen. But no worries, your secret is safe with me. 

This would be a perfect dessert for a family valentine’s dinner. It is full of pink and purple and everyone gets their own tart, so no arguing over who gets the biggest piece. Keeping the peace is always a bonus. Don’t like raspberries and blackberries? Use whatever fruit is your fav. The sky is the limit on your creativity. What is the favorite dessert in your house?
