Honey Glazed Fig & Mascarpone Tart

There is just something so beautiful about figs. Maybe it's their deep dark purple or pop of green color, or  maybe it's their sweet ripe taste, but when you combine this intriguing fruit with the sweet and creamy taste of mascarpone cheese and honey in a buttery flaky crust, the results are phenomenal. Yes, this Honey Glazed Fig & Mascarpone Tart just so happens to be a pure dream in the form of a dessert. I have to admit, I used a pre-made crust for this tart, and you could of course make your own, but part of the beauty behind this dessert is that it's so simple and easy to throw together!


1 pre-made pie crust, thawed
1 cup mascarpone cheese
3/4 cup cream cheese
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
12-15 sliced fresh figs, purple or green or both!
extra honey for drizzling


Place the dough into the tart pan and use your fingers to lightly press it along the bottom, sides, and edges of the pan. Cut any excess dough by pressing it on the edge of the tart pan. Refrigerate dough for 20 minutes while the oven preheats to 350 degrees.

Remove the tart pan from the refrigerator. Line the unbaked crust with a sheet of foil or parchment paper, covering all sides. Fill the pan with dried beans or pie weights. Bake for 15 minutes. Rotate the pan and bake for another 15 minutes. Remove the foil and beans from the pan and bake for another 6 minutes, or until crust looks dry and is a pale golden yellow color. Remove the pie from the oven and let the shell cool completely.

In a medium bowl combine mascarpone cheese and sour cream. Beat together with a spatula. Add the honey and vanilla extract and stir to combine.

Once the crust is completely cool, spread the filling evenly across the bottom of the tart. Arrange the sliced figs in a circular pattern on top of the filling. Drizzle with honey just before serving.

My point was simply, don't wear the low cut dress, get mad when people don't simply pay attention to your ideas,then play the victim when someone points out the low cut dress.

Thesis writing involves several processes which makes the entirety of the experience both exciting and challenging. From choosing a researchable topic that has not been done by other students and eventually narrowing it down to become a uniquely original work to soliciting the help of a research supervisor and in embarking on data collection and writing the paper, these are some of the tasks that almost all undergraduate and graduate students working on a thesis consider as stressful. In spite of the many challenges that students have to put up with, undeniably, the thesis project is an important project-based and challenge-based educational experience that helps in building character and in preparing students for their chosen career. One particular skill that is indispensable and which perhaps is unknowingly cultivated among students as they work on a thesis is the ability to work with a group of superiors.
