Fig, Peach & Mascarpone Tart


Looking for a summer dessert that’s more than blueberry pie? Try this tart made with sweet figs, peaches, and creamy mascarpone cheese.

Now that it was mid-afternoon on the fourth of July, during the hottest part of the day, and in my house, after the oven had been on around 400 degrees for the better part of five hours, I succesfully created what I considered to be a A) varsity level baked good, and B) I try, tried again and got it right. Lesson learned. Go figure.
