Raspberry Tartlets with Vanilla Cream

The best thing about summer is the fruit. I just love the sweetness of all the berries.  In my cookbook La Tartine Gourmande I found a recipe for blackberry tartlets with vanilla-flavoured mascarpone cream. I decided to make them with raspberries instead. It’s a very easy recipe since you can buy the tartlet crusts in the supermarket, and only need to make the filling and topping. It’s a perfect ending to a perfect summer day. Scroll down for the recipe.
