Saturday we tried the Firehouse Subs for the first time. That place was a mad house. I guess lunchtime right after all the sports activities is not a good time. The sub was very good. I am not fond of warm subs but that one was ok. Thank goodness I only wanted unsweetened tea. That drink machine with all the choices would have driven me crazzzzzzyyy!
Here is another pie/ tart recipe from our National Pie celebration.
Mascarpone-Maple Tarts with Maple-Balsamic Strawberries
1 (8-ounce) package frozen tart shells, thawed
3/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons maple syrup, divided
1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
1 (8.8 ounce) container mascarpone cheese, softened
1 3 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
Garnish: fresh mint (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place tart shell on a baking sheet, and bake according to package directions.
Let cool completely.
In medium saucepan, combine 3/4 cup maple sugar and balsamic vinegar.
Bring to a boil: reduce heat, and simmer 11-12 minutes or until mixture is reduced to about 1/3 cup.
Allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
In medium bowl, beat mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and remaining 2 Tablespoons maple syrup with a mixture at medium speed until blended.
Spoon 1 teaspoon Maple-balsamic mixture in each prepared tart shell.
Fill tart shell with mascarpone mixture.
Top with strawberries.
Drizzle remaining maple-balsamic mixture over strawberries.
Garnish with mint.
To make ahead, prepare tarts up through topping with strawberries.
Cover and chill up to 8 hours.
Remove fro refrigerator, and drizzle with maple-balsamic mixture minutes before serving.
If mixture becomes too thick, reheat in microwave for about 10 seconds.
Josh mowed the yard here at the shop. I don't know how he has the time to get everything done. He helps coach his sons baseball team. Plus he is helping with Carter's T-ball team. He works full time and is a wonderful husband and father. If anyone is in need of help he is there. Thank you Josh.
Have a great day.
See you at the shop.
