Prep Time: 1 hour
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour and 12 minutes

Yield: 1 tart, 14 x 4.5 inch tart pan

Servings: 6 dessert servings

Baking Tools

  • I use Wilton's extra-long (14 x 4.5 inches) non-stick tart pan with fluted edges because I like the presentation of the tart once it is finished
  • However, any rectangular, round, or square pan will work that is approximately 14 x 4.5 inches in size or an 8 x 8-inch square or 8-inch round pan will work

Tart Pastry

  • Frozen and thawed puff pastry (one store-bought package is enough)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon of heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons of raw sugar, use more or less depending on your preference
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the puff pastry to fit your pan of choice
  3. Butter the tart pan
  4. Gently tuck the puff pastry into the pan of your choice. Be careful not to stretch the puff pastry
  5. To make the egg wash, whisk the egg and heavy cream together
  6. Using a pastry brush, gently brush the puff pastry with the egg wash
  7. Sprinkle the pastry with the raw sugar
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and puffed
  9. Cool completely

Lemon Curd Mascarpone Mixture

  • ¾ cup whipping cream
  • 1 8-ounce container of mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • NOTE: If you are not a fan of mascarpone cheese, cream cheese may be substituted with just as much deliciousness!
  • 1 heaping tablespoon of powdered sugar
  • 1 cup lemon curd, store-bought - I used the Bonne Maman brand
  1. While the pastry is cooking, prepare the lemon curd mascarpone mixture
  2. Whip the heavy cream on high with an electric mixer until soft peaks form
  3. Add the softened mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar and beat to mix well
  4. Fold in the lemon curd with a spatula
  5. Set aside

Raspberry and Strawberry Topping

  • 1-pint strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 1-pint raspberries
  • ¼ cup strawberry preserves, I used homemade but store-bought works great, too!
  • Fresh mint leaves for garnish, I used mint from my herb garden
  • Powdered sugar for garnish
  1. In a separate bowl, mix the raspberries and sliced strawberries
  2. In a separate bowl, heat the strawberry preserves in the microwave until thin in consistency
  3. Mix the strawberry preserves into the berries
  4. Set aside

Assembling the Tart

  1. Gently spoon the mascarpone mixture into the cooled tart crust
  2. Top with the berry mixture
  3. Garnish with the mint leaves
  4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar using a powdered sugar shaker-duster or sifter
