    Refreshing Lemon Berry Tart

    I never cared for tarts until I recently took a bite of a friend’s at a favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant.  It was imported from Italy but tasted like it was made just minutes before it was served.

    A Quick and Simple Fruit Tart

    I could taste a hint of lemon, sweet mascarpone, and cream.  I recreated it using one of my favorite crusts that resembles a traditional sugar cookie and provides great balance for the cream.

    This lemon berry tart is deliciously easy & beautiful. It’s the perfect addition to holiday gatherings.

    Pro Tips For Making a Lemon Berry Tart

    • Remember to leave the pan ungreased for a perfect crust
    • It’s very important to NOT over whip the cream. Overmixing will cause the cream to curdle, and you’ll have to start over
    • Top with your favorite in-season fruits for a fresh taste
