Silky, smooth, creamy and utterly fragrant, this saffron & mascarpone tart is one not to be ignored. And how about that colour!
When I cross paths with a recipe that grabs me immediately I don’t see the point in filing it away. Case in point with this glorious tart concocted by my friend David (and his good friend) over at Cocoa & Lavender.
I needed to make this one asap.
Mascarpone spiked with saffron, honey and lemon zest, and a shortbread crust taken to new levels with flecks of fresh rosemary.
It smells a little like Italy, don’t you think?
This is an easy one to make and a very easy one to eat, and despite using just one tablespoon of rosemary, rather than two, those glorious aromatics still danced on my tongue like the tarantella.
David’s original recipe is here.
