that you have the SWEETEST husband in the world?
Saturday, it was VERY hot, I was VERY lazy, but we needed groceries. I sent Brad off to Costco with my list. He returned with everything on my list...
a huge bunch of girasoli and fresh figs! We are both missing Italy, and he thought they would cheer me up.
And he got a Marscapone-fig tart!
I took some tart pastry dough out of the freezer and thawed it. My recipe makes enough dough for 4 batches, so I almost always have some. I blind baked a small rectangular tart crust.
For the filling, I used 6 oz. marcapone (room temp), 2 oz. cream cheese (room temp), 1/2 cup sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla. Beat and spread into tart shell. Top with figs (cut in quarters), and glaze with a spoon of lemonade concentrate.
Easy, luscious looking, and delicious. It tastes like summer in Italy!
