A Summer Dessert: No-Bake Lemon Mascarpone Tart

Rossella makes a Lemon Mascarpone Tart

I've fallen in love with No Bake Tarts! They're quick and easy to prepare and can be made with so many fun fillings. You can absolutely switch up the cookies in the crust and use a store bought lemon curd if you wish.

12 Oz Stella D'oro Marguerite Cookies, 1 Stick Unsalted Melted Butter, 2 Cups Lemon Curd, 1 - 16 Oz Package Mascarpone Cheese (Room Temperature), Fresh Raspberries for garnish
 
To Make the Fresh Lemon Curd:
1 Cup Fresh Lemon Juice, Zest of 2 lemons, 1 Cup Sugar, 7 Eggs, 3 Egg Yolks, 3/4 Cup Butter Cubed
 
Make  the Lemon Curd:
In a bowl, whisk the eggs and egg yolks together and set aside. In a heavy bottomed sauce pan combine the sugar, zest, juice and egg mixture together and whisk on a medium low heat until mixture thickens and can coat the back of a spoon. About 15 minutes. Stir in butter and then remove from heat when it's melted. Strain and let cool before using. Keep refrigerated.
 
For the Crust:
In a food processor, process the cookies until they are very fine crumbs. About 45 seconds. In a bowl, add the melted butter to the crumbs and form a paste. Press into and 11 inch loose bottom tart pan making sure the crumbs are even all around the edges. You may also use the bottom of a glass to flatten it out. Place the tart pan in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
 
For the Filling:
In a bowl add 2 cups of Lemon Curd to the Mascarpone and mix with a hand mixer until smooth and combined. Pour into the chilled crust and decorate with fresh Raspberries. Let the tart set in the refrigerator for about an hour before serving.
