When you have beautifully ripe berries and you add something crunchy and some rich cream, you have magic. I know mascarpone is technically a cheese, but the logic is the same. I would dive into this tart.
I have not tried this recipe, but plan to now. Frank Stitt’s Southern Table is one of my favorite cookbooks, too, and my cookbook collection isn’t lacking. Other faves: his recipes for poisson en papillote, spicy remoulade and the Highlands grits (oh lord, the grits — the sauce tastes exactly like the restaurant’s version). Thanks for sharing this!
This is my kind of dessert, and I’m not a big dessert person (don’t like cake at all), but the thought of those sweet tart strawberries, the buttery crust and the mascarpone truly makes my mouth water. Will definitely put this on my list of desserts for summer entertaining.
Perfect timing! I had just got my hands on about 10 kilos of strawberries and then realised I only had about 3 days to use them all when I saw this “life-saver” recipe. I loved the crisp crust of this tart!
