This Strawberry Mascarpone Hazelnut Chocolate Tart is so easy to make. Just see how my 11 year old granddaughter did it.

My Strawberry Mascarpone Hazelnut Chocolate Tart was the recipe that earned me a spot as a finalist 2 years ago in the Pillsbury Bake-off Contest.

This past week all of my grandchildren were out of town, Grandpa Bob and I went to the lake for a week, so we did not get to have my weekly Kids Cooking Class.  I am reposting a previous cooking class with my granddaughter when she made this.

My  11 year old granddaughter called me one day and said that she was required to do a “How To” demonstration speech in  one of her classes.  She asked to do my Pillsbury entry!  She came to my house one evening and made the tart and I took pictures.  This was an easy recipe to do and I am so proud of the great job she did.
