Mascarpone Tart with Honey, Oranges and Pistachios


  • 1 refrigerated pie crust (half of a 15-oz package)
  • 2 large navel oranges
  • 1 8-8.8 oz container of chilled mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp honey, divided
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 2 Tbsp chopped pistachios


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Press pie crust onto bottom and up sides of 9-inch-diameter tart pan with removable bottom; fold sides in and press to extend sides 1/4 inch above rim of pan. Pierce crust all over with fork. Bake until golden brown, about 24 minutes. Cool completely on rack.

2. Meanwhile, grate enough orange peel to measure 1 1/4 tsp. Cut off remaining peel and pith from oranges. Slice oranges into thin rounds, then cut rounds crosswise in half. Place orange slices on paper towels to drain slightly.

3. Combine mascarpone, cream, sugar, 1 tbsp honey, cardamom and orange peel in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat just until blended and peaks form (do not overbeat or mixture will curdle). Spread filling evenly in cooled crust. Arrange orange slices atop tart in concentric circles; sprinkle with pistachios. Drizzle with remaining 1 tbsp honey and serve.
