Ingredients

Lemon Mascarpone:

  • 4 ounces mascarpone cheese room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon curd homemade or from a jar

The Rest:

  • 1 sheet purchased puff pastry defrosted
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh blackberries
  • lemon zest for garnish

Instructions

Lemon Mascarpone:

  • Into a medium bowl, combine the mascarpone cheese, lemon curd and milk.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat until the ingredients are combined and the mixture is smooth.

The Rest:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • On a lightly floured surface lightly roll out puff pastry. Using a 3¾-inch round biscuit cutter, or the rim of a glass or bowl, cut out 6 circles from the puff pastry. Lay the circles on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Lightly brush the tops of the puff pastry with egg.
  • Bake until puffed and light golden brown, about 10 minutes. As soon as the puff pastry is removed from the oven, lightly press it down with the back of a spatula so that the surface of each round is flat.
  • Lift the puff pastry pieces from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks.

Assembly:

  • Spread a heaping tablespoon of the lemon mascarpone on each puff pastry round.
  • Divide the berries evenly between the rounds.
  • Garnish with some lemon zest. Serve.
