Pillsbury Pie Crust

Ingredients

  • 1 Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
  • 1 container (8 oz) mascarpone cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Seeds from 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 5 tablespoons strawberry jam
  • 3/4 lb strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped roasted pistachio nuts

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 450°F. Unroll pie crust on work surface. Roll crust out slightly to 13 inches; cut into 8 (4-inch) rounds (reroll scraps, and cut out remaining rounds if necessary). Place rounds on ungreased cookie sheet. Use fork to poke holes all over dough rounds. Discard scraps.
  • 2
    Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until tarts are golden and baked through. Cool completely on cooling rack.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat mascarpone cheese, 2 tablespoons of the sugar and the vanilla bean seeds with electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Spread 2 tablespoons mascarpone mixture on top of each fully cooled tart. Place jam in small bowl; stir until smooth. Spread about 2 teaspoons jam on top of each. Arrange strawberries in decorative pattern on top of each.
  • 4
    Sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar, then chopped pistachio nuts. Serve immediately.

Expert Tips

  • Swap mascarpone cheese for 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened, if desired.
  • Poking holes all over pie crust before baking keeps crust from puffing up too much in oven.
