Easy Strawberry Mascarpone Tart

strawberry mascarpone tart

Here is an impressive yet simple recipe for an easy strawberry mascarpone tart. I splurged on real mascarpone (light and fluffy Italian cream cheese) for this but here is a recipe for a frugal alternative to mascarpone

I think the shortbread crust is my favorite part of this easy fruit tart. You can mix the dough with your hands and then just press that dough into the pan with your fingers!
