Blueberry Mascarpone Tarts
Servings: 8 small tarts
A low carb tart with a creamy yet light mascarpone cream filling. Topped with a blueberry sauce for a delicious dessert
- ½ cup cream, heavy
- ¾ cup mascarpone cream
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- ¼ cup erythritol ground
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 tablespoon erythritol
- 2 tablespoons water
- ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
MAKE THE TART CASES
Preheat the oven to 190C/375F degrees
Place the pastry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until a smooth dough is form.
Remove the dough and pull into 8 even pieces.
Place a piece of the dough in a mini tart tin and gently press it evenly around the edges and bottom. I use silicone but greased metal ones with a removal bottom are fine.
Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the pastry is golden and firm.
Set aside to cool.
MAKE THE FILLING
In a bowl, whisk the mascarpone until smooth.
Add the cream and continue to whisk.
Add the lemon juice, vanilla extract and ground erythritol and whisk.
Spoon into the tart cases and spread evenly.
Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
Serve with the blueberry sauce over the top or with any other topping of your choosing.
MAKE THE BLUEBERRY SAUCE
Place the blueberries in a saucepan with the water and erythritol.
Bring to the boil and gently stir so that the blueberries are softened.
Add the xanthan gum and stir until thickened.
Set aside to cool until ready for use
