Ingredients

For the Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups whole, unsalted cashews
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 3 tbsp Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3-4 tbsp honey

For the Filling & Fruit

  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tbsp Rodelle Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 2 apricots, halved
  • 2 peaches, sliced
  • 2 kiwi fruit, halved or sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries, halved or sliced
  • 1/2 cup bing cherries, pitted
  • 1/2 cup blueberries

For the Glaze

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp Rodelle Vanilla Bean Paste
  • handful of fresh mint

Directions

For the Crust

  • Place the cashews in a food processor and pulse until coarse crumbs remain.
  • Add the coconut, cocoa and salt and pulse a few more times until combined. Add in the coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of honey, pulsing and blending until the crust mixture is sticky and comes together. If it doesn't seem sticky enough, add in more of the honey.
  • Remove the mixture and press it into a tart pan with a removable bottom or a springform pan. You can even use a regular pie or baking dish, but the pieces may not come out as clean.
  • Press the crust up the sides a bit. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

For the Filling & Fruit

  • While the crust is in the fridge, whisk together the mascarpone, condensed milk and vanilla bean paste until smooth.
  • Pour it into the center of the crust and use a spatula to spread it evenly.
  • Stick the crust back in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

For the Glaze

  • Make the glaze while the mascarpone filling is chilling, because it needs to cool a bit after making.
  • Combine the sugar, juices, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk until the cornstarch dissolves and bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Let it boil for 1 to 2 minutes, until it starts to thicken. (It will thicken more as it sits and cools).
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla bean paste. Let cool for 10 minutes, but not much longer.
  • Slice your fruit while the tart is in the fridge. You can use whatever fruit you'd like and cut it however you'd like too!
  • After at least 30 minutes, place the fruit on top of the mascarpone filling. Drizzle the fruit with the glaze.
  • Chill for another 30 minutes, then sprinkle with mint leaves for serving.
