Strawberry and Mascarpone Cream Tart

Monday, July 31, 2017

Oh wow! I love summer so much! It's warm outside, and I'm a cold weather type of person. And I love summer desserts - with fresh fruits from local farmers, those are the best. I'm waiting whole year for summer and our regional strawberries! Mmm.... There's nothing better than them! Nothing can replace them even those winter imported strawberries aren't so good :(

We love strawberries and we use them in many ways! Most often as an ingredient to desserts or to a breakfast with fresh croissant and nutella! Maybe that isn't fit at all, but we also need some sweetness and calories in our lives, don't we? ;) They're also really good as a quick snack - delicious with a natural yogurt :D

And the really really best dessert is this simple Strawberry Tart! It has all what we love and I'm sure you'll love it too! Our friends and family get a little addicted to this tart. Once you start eating it, you want another piece and more and more. And the tart is light, the cream is fluffy so you don't feel this calories. Little tricky... but you can sin sometimes, right? Well, THIS Tart is worth it!
The crust is almost the same as in our previous recipe for the Strawberry & Vanilla Tart. Simple shortcake with lemon zest, which gives the cake more freshness. The shortcake is easy to make and it's crispy even the next day, so you can prepare it the day before a party.

And the cream! Uhh!!! I could it eat with strawberries without the crust, haha! It's sooo good, fluffy and sweet. It's based on mascarpone and whipped cream. I love it so much that I taste it hundred times while cooking and then I'm full before even cuting the first piece!
This time we decorated the cake with little meringues. You can try it too! They're really sweet, crispy outside and ciagnace inside. It's an opportunity to make them, because we use only egg yolks in this recipe. Don't waste food and make some meringues! Other option is to make a big meringue with more mascarpone cream and more strawberries! Oh, we love it!
If you're still here with us, there's a time for recipe! xx

  1. What. A. JOYFUL. Dessert!!!! I love the visual and all of the flavors. The cream is just to die for, visually and flavor-wise (the latter I imagine since I haven't tasted it...yet.)
