  • 1
    In a small bowl, stir together the mascarpone cheese, sugar and lemon juice.
  • 2
    In another small bowl, mix together (with your fingers) the softened butter and oats.
  • 3
    Roll out each pie crust on a floured work surface. Using a 4-inch cookie cutter, cut out 8-10 circles. Nestle them into muffin tins, lightly pressing against the sides and crimping the edges.
  • 4
    Spoon a tablespoon or so of the mascarpone mixture into each pie cup, followed by a tablespoon of fresh berries, and a small dollop of the oat/butter mixture.
  • 5
    Place in a 425°F oven and bake for roughly 20 minutes, or until the pie crust is cooked through and oats on top are browned and bubbly.
  • 6
    Let cool about 10 minutes, then dust with a kiss of powdered sugar and garnish with fresh mint leaves and whipped cream, if desired. Serve immediately.

More About This Recipe
  • Can we inhale six of these at once? Wait, did I just dare myself? CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. I love love love summer desserts. They can be kind of healthy sometimes, so you have the excuse of eating approximately 82.634% more of them. On any given day. All of the days. The thing that makes these spectacular is the lemon/mascarpone filling. Sure, sure they have fresh, plump summer blueberries in them. But the CHEESE. They have cheese in them. Italian cream cheese with a kiss of lemon. If you need to lie down and/or dance and/or send a few emails, fine by me. And then they're each topped with a little happy bundle of oats and butter. Baked, bubbly, beautiful. Summer rules my face.
