Berry mascarpone mini cheesecakes

Berry mascarpone mini tarts are delightful individual desserts that combine the creamy richness of mascarpone cheese with the sweet tartness of fresh berries. To make these tarts, you’ll need mini tart shells, mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and fresh berries such as strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

Start by preparing the mascarpone filling. In a bowl, mix together the mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined. Spoon the mascarpone mixture into the mini tart shells, filling each one about halfway.

Next, arrange the fresh berries on top of the mascarpone filling. You can use a single type of berry or mix different berries for a colorful presentation.

Chill the tarts in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld together and the filling to set. Serve the tarts cold, and enjoy the delicious combination of creamy mascarpone and sweet, juicy berries!
