Last-Minute Mini Fruit Tarts

Need a dessert in a pinch? Store-bought mini crusts are a party thrower’s best friend and these tarts will be made and gobbled up in no time at all.




  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the wire whip, whip the heavy whipping cream until soft peaks form. Alternatively, use a large bowl and a handheld mixer or whisk. Set the whipped cream aside.
  2. In a separate large bowl, combine the mascarpone cheese, sugar, and vanilla and whisk until smooth.
  3. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture by hand.
  4. Divide the filling equally among the mini graham crusts.
  5. Refrigerate the tarts for 2 hours.
  6. Garnish the tarts with fresh berries and parsley to serve.
