This lovely tart is easier than double-crust pies because you make a free-form crust. The combination of rich and creamy mascarpone cheese paired with sweet apricot preserves is, as they say, a marriage made in heaven.


  • 1 recipe Flaky Piecrust dough
  • Flour to dust rolling pin and counter
  • 5 tablespoons mascarpone cheese


  1. Prepare the Flaky Piecrust. Then roll out the dough on a lightly floured counter to form a 12-inch circle.
  2. Center the oven rack. Preheat the oven to 425°F<
