Crispy puff pastry topped with sweet mascarpone, fresh berries and a hint of lemon — so simple, yet so good!
Puff pastry is one of my favorite go to items, especially when I’m entertaining. I always have a few sheets of puff pastry stashed in my freezer to make a variety of sweet or savory dishes.
Over the holidays I featured my Roasted Garlic Puff Pastry Flatbread, which is out of this world. It is great to cut up into little squares to serve to guests, or to enjoy on a dinner and movie night.
My trick for making puff pastry flat is to bake it with a baking sheet on top of it. The result is a rustic and buttery puff pastry flatbread, perfect for a variety of toppings.
My latest puff pastry flatbread creation is this Mixed Berry and Mascarpone Puff Pastry Flatbread. With the long winter we have had in Buffalo, fresh berries are a welcome addition in my kitchen. It’s a taste of summer, plus my kids love them. This flatbread is similar to a Fruit Tart or Fruit Pizza. It is topped with a sweet mascarpone, fresh berries and a pinch of lemon zest. Not only does it make a pretty presentation, it tastes so good too.
