PieDay Friday-Mixed Berry Mascarpone Pie

Simple and elegant, this is a perfect summer pie. The sweetness of the mascarpone pairs perfectly with tart berries.  It would be lovely served on any table.

Tips:
  • Using a spatula, create a well in the middle of the mascarpone filling before adding the berries. This will keep them from running too much, down the sides of your pie pan.
  • Any flavor "berry" jam will work. I used black raspberry.



Mixed Berry Mascarpone Pie
1 pie crust, pre-baked
1/2 pint whipping cream
2/3 cup sugar, divided
8oz Mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup milk (or cream)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
1 recipe for Berry Topping, below


Beat the whipping cream and 1/3 cup of sugar together until firm peaks form. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, combine mascarpone, milk, 1/3 cup sugar, vanilla and rum extracts. Beat until smooth and creamy.  Gently fold in whipped cream until well incorporated. Pour mixture into baked and cooled pie crust. Spoon Berry Topping over mascarpone mixture. Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before serving.

Berry Topping


1/2 pint blackberries
1/2 pint raspberries
1/3 cup blackberry or raspberry jam
2 tablespoons water

In a large bowl, stir together the jam and water until runny. Add the berries and toss together until berries are well coated.
