No-Bake Plum Tart with Mascarpone


This easy yet elegant No-Bake Plum Tart with Mascarpone is made from a simple gingersnap crust and delicious mascarpone filling. It is garnished with stovetop stewed plums and fresh thyme sprigs for a finishing touch.  

This mouthwatering plum tart is beyond simple to throw together and requires a few simple ingredients. For the crust, I use a simple mixture of gingersnap crumbs, butter, and a pinch of salt. You can never go wrong with this type of crust! For the filling, I use slightly sweetened mascarpone cheese as a base. It is rich and creamy and tastes like a dream. To make it, I simply whip up mascarpone with some cream and honey. Next, I top the tart with plums cooked in a simple caramel sauce. This quick stovetop caramel sauce brings out the best of the plums and is so easy. Finish off with fresh thyme sprigs and serve for a winning dessert.
