Mascarpone, Italy's version of cream cheese, is a sweet, delicate triple-blended cheese made from cow's milk that is often used in both sweet and savory dishes. Here, we used only a small amount and stretched it with cream cheese to get the richness of the mascarpone with reduced calories and fat. Store the remaining mascarpone in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer at high speed 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Spoon cheese mixture evenly into crusts.

Step 2

Place jam in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk until smooth. Add raspberries, stirring until coated; spoon evenly over cheese filling in each tart. Serve immediately, or refrigerate 3 hours or until thoroughly chilled.

Nice dessert - better with your own crust.

Prepared pie crusts are usually awful.... stale... dry... little flavor or richness.  It's best to prepare your own, and you can find the mini pie tins all over. Kmart, Target, Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc.  Just use the crust recipe from any graham cracker pie crust dessert. Just before serving, I like to add a bit of visual impact by sprinkling with a light dusting of powdered, vanilla sugar over the berries, and a leaf or 2 of mint.

I love to find easy recipes to serve to my card club members. I have used mini prepared pie crust shells before and find them wonderfully convenient. This filling tastes great and the fruit topping looks impressive enough to have come right from the bakery.
