Gluten Free Lemon Mascarpone Tart

Gluten Free Lemon Mascarpone Tart

This Gluten Free Lemon Mascarpone Tart has a special place in my heart. It was the first dessert Jesse (my husband) made for me when we started dating. The night we had this tasty dessert I actually arrived at Jesse’s to find the house empty, with a series of sticky notes that eventually led me to the tart in the fridge.

So technically I can’t claim this recipe as mine, it’s really my husband’s. It only requires 6 ingredients and goes perfectly with a scoop of ice cream or cream. I would be doing a disservice to you all if I didn’t share the recipe. So here it is!

Gluten Free Lemon Mascarpone Tart
Servings: 12 people
  • 1⅓ (200g) cup gluten free plain flour, sifted
  • 60 g pure icing sugar
  • 110 g chilled unsalted butter, chopped
  • 3 eggs, plus 4 extra egg yolks (7 eggs in total)
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • finely grated zest and juice of 3 lemons
Pastry Tart Base
  1. Whiz the flour, icing sugar and butter in a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add 1 egg and whiz until mixture comes together (you may need to add a little iced water if the pastry is not coming together). Form pastry dough into a ball and wrap to refrigerate for 30 minutes. 

  2. Preheat over to 190°C and grease a 24cm loose-bottom tart pan with margarine or butter. Line the tart pan with baking paper and fill with pastry weights before baking for 10 minutes. 

  3. Roll out pastry on a floured surface until 4mm thick, then quickly lay out over tart base with pastry weights. Trim the excess and chill for another 30 minutes.

Lemon Filling
  1. Reduce the oven to 150°C. Beat the mascarpone, caster sugar, 3 eggs and 4 egg yolks with an electric beater until just combined, then beat in the lemon zest and juice. Pour into tart shell and tart pan and bake for 50-55 minutes, or until set. Cool slightly.

    • Hi Tracey, thanks so much for your question and alerting me to the error with the recipe. I have fixed it now. The caster sugar in the fill-in is ¾ cup caster sugar. Would love to hear what you think of the tart if you bake it! Kind regards, Amanda.
