Raspberry and mascarpone tartlets are easy to make and look great. That would be the ultimate pastry. You can make these raspberry tarts within 10 minutes. They have a wonderfully sweet raspberry taste on a creamy mascarpone bed. Sprinkled with lemon and mint sugar, this is simply a delicious treat!
Raspberry and Mascarpone Tartlets
Sweet raspberries, fresh mint, slightly sour lemon, and creamy mascarpone. The ideal combination for a treat. The whole is laid out on a biscuit, which you can buy ready-made (Pampas shells), but of course, you can also easily make it yourself. I'll give you the recipe for that too.
If you decide to make this treat, I'm sure you'll enjoy it because it is pleasing to the eye and mouth-watering.
What do you need for Mini Raspberry Tarts?
To prepare these Raspberry and Mascarpone Tartlets, you need the following ingredients. You can find the correct amounts in the recipe card at the bottom of the blog:
- Biscuits - Buy them ready-made (Pampas shells) or make them yourself using the enclosed recipe.
- Mascarpone - a soft and rich cheese that makes the mousse very creamy.
- Vanilla Extract - For a hint of vanilla flavor. If you can get it, use natural vanilla extract, which has a slightly deeper flavor than artificial vanilla extract. With this recipe, you can make a homemade vanilla extract (and, if you bake a lot, it is highly recommended because you can use this for a reasonable amount of time).
- Cream - Use a cream, which you can whip. This makes the topping airy.
- Maple Syrup - A sugar syrup extracted from the Maple Tree. It has a light brown, soft caramel taste.
- Raspberries - Sweet, soft, and deliciously juicy. Do not wash them; just wipe them clean with a damp piece of paper. Remove any leaves or stems by hand.
- Lemons - Freshly squeezed lemon juice. Nothing can beat that. Or use fresh lime juice (also excellent)
- Sugar - Sweetens the mascarpone cream
- Mint leaves - This sweet herb gives a cooling effect in your mouth when you eat it. This will provide a real flavor burst!

This is just the recipe I need. I have to make pastries for a wedding and was at a loss of what to make until I found these tarts. I can't find those shells, so I made my own for practice and they came out perfect.
