I’m giving you three ways to make beautiful, delicious Strawberry Mascarpone Tarts. You will not believe how easy it is to create these delicious treats!

Have you been reluctant to try using puff pastry or felt intimidated by what might happen? I was too before I tried it and found out how easy it can be. Puff pastry is great and you can use it to do so many things. Besides if you don’t like the way something turns out, do it over! We all have cooking fails, EVERYONE does.

The three options are : 1) Mini Tart Shells 2) Puff Pastry Shells 3) Puff Pastry Sheets. Three different looks with the same ingredients. Each one will wow your family or guests.

It’s strawberry season right now so I’m using strawberries but these tarts would be delicious with blueberries, blackberries or raspberries too.

Layered Tarts

 
Thaw puff pastry sheets for 30 minutes before you plan to use them. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
 
Lay puff pastry sheet out on a board. One side will come dusted with flour, put that side down.
 
 
 
Cut into tart sections for small tarts (6 small tarts)
 
 
Dock bottom of each piece and cover in egg wash. I cut strips with a pastry roller to make up the sides. Add those to the egg washed bottom and brush with egg wash.
 
Bake  in 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool completely before filling. Layer in lemon curd, mascarpone, and add sliced berries and top with strawberry glaze.
