Peach & Mascarpone Tart

Ben Fink

Yield: Yields one 11-inch tart

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.


  • 1 cup chilled mascarpone
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tsp. grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup chilled heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 6 large peaches, pitted, peeled if desired, and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam, warmed over medium heat until liquefied
  • No-Fail Butter Tart Crust, baked and cooled
