Marzipan Tart with Fresh Berries & Mascarpone Filling

Fresh berries are simply super delicious! I love to eat them as healthy snacks during summer –  but nothing signals summer vacation like a homemade danish berry tart dessert. It´s easy and quick to make and perfect with a cup of coffee or rose wine. This cake always reminds me of childhood.

Suddenly I see myself for my inner eye, as a child running happy and barefoot in my grandma´s beautiful garden. She had a whole field of all kinds of berries. In the middle of the field she had placed a scarecrow, to try to keep the birds away.

My grandma was a master in the kitchen. I loved to study her and help her out. But indeed the best thing was eating the food on the porch overlooking the pool, with the dogs and the cats laying lazy in the sun. Ahh, those summer memories….
