Here’s a sweet treat for you – blueberry lemon mascarpone tarts. Crumbly tart shells filled with lemon laced mascarpone and jumbo blueberries. These small tarts are just right for one person and will serve as dessert or a sweet treat for brunch.
You will love these blueberry lemon mascarpone tarts. The buttery richness of the tart shell is really all I need, but the stars in this dish is the filling. The sweetened mascarpone is whipped with vanilla, lemon zest and powdered sugar, and is a great foundation for the plump blueberries that burst in your mouth at first bite.
Jumbo blueberries are wonderful. They’re great tasting, great looking, and so good for you. However, if blueberries are not your thing, you can use blackberries, strawberries or mango. Frankly, any fruit that works well with lemon.
If you’ve visited my blog a few times, you may know that I love food served in individual portions. I have so many “mini” versions of pans and bowls. I realize though that not everyone shares my obsession. You can use a 9 inch pan instead to make one large tart, just remember to adjust baking time.
This recipe makes eight tarts, so be careful. Make sure you have enough people to enjoy them with you, otherwise you will be stuck at home with them all by yourself. I don’t know about you, but I cannot be left alone with a bunch of sweet treats.
I love these blueberry lemon mascarpone tarts – did I say that already? They look so good all alone on a plate waiting for you to dive in with your fork. Give this recipe a try and dive in.
