I made this last night and it is long, long gone. M and I ate hefty portions of it and then I took the rest to work today where my coworkers seemed to enjoy it mightily. I am in love with the recipe, from Smitten Kitchen, which I’m also in love with.
I’d never bought mascarpone cheese before and had to do a little looking at Central Market on Saturday, then M tried to eat it, the gingersnaps got the teensiest bit stale (because someone, maybe me, just had to try them over the weekend and, um, see if they would make a good crust, yeah, that’s it…) and the nectarines weren’t ripening… But in the end, I had my tart! And boy was it worth the wait! Go! Check out the recipe!
I can’t wait to try some other fruit versions of this, maybe with strawberries, or raspberries, or blueberries, or…the possibilities are endless!
