Strawberry Mascarpone Pretzel Salad in a Jar is a variation to the reto Strawberry Pretzel Salad that has been popular since the 1960’s. This dessert was at any covered dish event we ever went to. It is perfect for summer because it is colorful, refreshing, and so delicious. Created in a jar with a lid makes it portable, it can be placed in a cooler on ice, and individual servings of any dessert are always a big hit.
Berry Lemon Mascarpone Cookie Tart is a richly, delicious summer tart. It is created using a refrigerated cookie dough crust that is filled with sweetened mascarpone cheese, homemade lemon curd, and then topped with a variety of fresh fruit.
In 2008 I was chosen as a finalist for the 43rd Pillsbury Bake-off Contest. I cannot even express how exciting this was and what an unforgettable experience. My recipe was Mascarpone Filled Cranberry Walnut Rolls.
