Mascarpone - Strawberrie Tartelette

Going to the Market at weekend is one of my little highlights and pleasures.. At the moment one can find there the richness and flavour of springtime and starting summertime. This means strawberries, raspberries, blueberries in abundance... So I could´nt resist to buy a whole basket with strawberries, delicious to savour just as they are but also delicious with some cream... The following recipe combines the sweetness of the fresh strawberries with some Mascarpone. One can either do some Mascarpone - Strawberrie Tartelettes or a Strawberrie - Mascarpone Cream or both :). Basically it´s a Mascarponecream combined with crushed, sweetened strawberries.
You need :
400 g Strawberries
250 g Mascarpone
150 g Heavy cream
1 Vanilla pod (scraped) or vanilla paste (3 dashes)
3 Tbsp. icing sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
3 plates of biscuit (if you wanna do the tartelettes)
4 steel dessert-circles
How to prepare:
1. Whippe the heavy cream with 1 dash vanilla paste (or half of the scraped vanilla pod)
2. Mix Mascarpone, lemon juice, rest of vanilla and 2 Tbsp. sugar
3. Fold in the heavy cream 
4. Cut out of your biscuit plate rounds with the dessert-circles and place them at the base of your dessert circles. Cut some stripes about 4 cm out of the biscuit and cover the sides of you circles
5. Fill in the cream
6. With a fork mash the strawberries and add 1 Tbsp. sugar
7. Place the strawberries on your cream.
8. Remove your circles and cover all around with cream.

 If you wanna do the cream simply put your Mascarponecream and strawberries in layers in a bowl.With a fork slowly mix a little bit cream and strawberries.
Refrigerate until savouring....
