Mascarpone nectarine tart with smoky almond crust

8 servings
1 hour
20 min


Number of serving: 8
2 cups graham crackers, crumbled

1/2 cup smoked almonds

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

8 ounces mascarpone cheese, softened

1/4 cup sour cream

1 egg

3 firm, ripe medium nectarines, peeled and cut into thin wedges


  • Preheat the oven to 350°. In a food processor, combine the graham crackers with the almonds and 2 tablespoons of the sugar and process until fine. Add the melted butter and pulse until the crumbs are evenly moistened. Press the crumbs into the bottom and 1/2 inch up the side of a rectangular tart pan or a 9-inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes, until the crust is set.

    Meanwhile, wipe out the food processor bowl. Add the mascarpone cheese, sour cream, egg and 2 tablespoons of the sugar and process until smooth. Pour the custard into the crust and bake for 15 minutes, until set. Let the tart cool slightly and transfer to the freezer to chill, about 15 minutes.

    In a bowl, toss the nectarines with the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Arrange the nectarines in a straight line over the custard. Remove the outer ring, cut the tart into slices and serve.
