How to make a fresh berry tart with honey mascarpone

 

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 1 free-range egg yolk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 to 4 tbsp ice water
  • 1 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • Seeds from 1 vanilla bean
  • 4 cups mixed fresh berries (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries)
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar



Directions
1 Cut a circle of parchment paper to fit the base of a 10" fluted tart pan with a removable bottom. Place paper in pan and set aside.

2 Stir the flour and icing sugar together in a large bowl until well combined. Using the coarse side of a cheese grater, grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients and work in the shreds with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Using a fork, whisk together the egg yolk, vanilla and ice water in a small bowl; stir into the dry mixture. Bring the mixture together with your hands to form a ball of pastry dough. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface to form a 12" circle and transfer to prepared tart pan, trimming the edges with a sharp knife. Cover pan with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.

3 Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Prick the base of the pastry all over with a fork and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until light golden and crisp. Set aside and allow to cool completely before filling.

4 Stir together the mascarpone, honey and vanilla seeds in a small bowl; spread the mixture evenly over the cooled tart shell. Mix all the berries with the brown sugar in a large bowl and carefully pour into the shell over the honey-mascarpone mixture. Slice to serve.
