Mascarpone is a light, creamy cheese that pairs wonderfully with all kinds of fruit. This tart is topped with peaches, but blueberries or apricots would also look pretty.
In a medium bowl, mix the mascarpone and confectioners’ sugar and stir until smooth. Add the orange zest and vanilla extract. Whip the cream until soft peaks appear and fold it into the mascarpone mixture. Spread the mixture into the tart crust. Top with the peach slices. Brush the peaches with the liquefied apricot jam to glaze. Refrigerate the tart at least 1 hour or overnight before serving.
