No-Bake Dessert - Strawberry Mascarpone Tart

No Bake Strawberry Mascaropone Tart made with fresh fruit and mascarpone cheese. Perfect for mother's day or any occasion.

This delicious no-bake strawberry mascarpone tart recipe is a perfect summer dessert but delicious for any occasion any time of year. 

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes



  • ¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter, melted


  • 16 ounces mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 16 ounces fresh strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • fresh mint leaves, for garnishing (optional)


  1. Prepare the crust: Hand mix the graham cracker crumbs, almond flour, butter, and almond butter until combined and it's all moistened. Press the crust into a 10-inch round tart pan. Place in the freezer while preparing the filling.
  2. Prepare the filling: In another bowl stir the mascarpone, sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract until combined and it's nice and creamy. Evenly spread over the graham crust, then refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  3. While the tart is in the fridge, slice the strawberries, cut off the stems and cut vertically into thin slices. Remove the tart from the fridge and place the strawberry slices onto the mascarpone filling in any fashion desired. Drizzle the tart with honey, then garnish with sliced almonds and if desired the mint.
  4. Serve immediately or keep refrigerated, loosely covered, until ready to serve.


Before serving but after the tart has set is when you want to garnish with the sliced almonds and mint if using.

Can be made with other berries or a combination of berries but we loved how it tasted (and looked) with the strawberries.

You can also top with vanilla ice cream or whip cream with a hint of vanilla for an even more decadent treat. Although this no-bake tart is decadent just the way it is too.

  5. I have wanted to cook with mascarpone cheese, ever since I saw celebrity chef Giada DiLaurentiis cook with it on Food Network. You can even turn this into a Fourth Of July dessert, by topping the tart with blueberries!

  6. This pie looks so beautiful! I think I will make it BUT there is no way that I will get it decorated this pretty.

  7. This looks fabulous! I would also end up trying it with different types of fruit since I'm the only strawberry lover in my family.

  9. (No-Bake Dessert – Strawberry Mascarpone Tart) My Mother use to make a fruit mascarpone years ago when I was a little girl that was so good. She always used a combination of different fruits on hers. All of her friends just loved it too.

  10. I'm looking for no bake recipes right now in this heat. This looks beautiful and I bet it tastes amazing.

I am going to make this especially on a hot summer day, because I don’t have to use the oven. I shared on Facebook and Pinterest. ? Thank you for sharing!!

  15. It looks delicious, but honestly I have no idea what mascarpone is. I'm guessing since it's a dessert, it might be like a cream cheese of some kind? Anyway, I was a bit confused because I saw it was no-bake (which I always love in summer), and then looked at the directions and it said 1 hour bake time, but read the recipe and it was just in the fridge for an hour...whew, I thought I might actually have to turn on the oven.

  22. This seems like a great recipe and lends itself to lots of variations. I'd like to try mixed berries and maybe lemon instead of almond. Any way would be great for a summer soiree

    • Hi Sheryl,

      It really depends on where you live. Some grocery stores carry it in the deli section, Italian specialty stores, specialty delis etc. I find it in abundance where I live but I can't speak for other areas.

  23. I used to love strawberry pies when I was a kid (my brother would bring them back from the Shoney's where he worked - now the last Shoney's in town has closed, but that's neither here nor there). Now I love tarts. These look amazing!

  24. It is strawberry season here in Florida, and I am always looking for recipes with strawberries. This looks amazing. I love the combination of strawberries with mascarpone cheese. I would love to make this for 4th of July family get-together and add blueberries to make it "red, white and blue."

  25. I love strawberries and this looks like a wow dessert! That's what people would say when they first saw it..gets your attention fast.

  26. Very pretty but the prep has to be over the 15 minutes just to cut and then arrange those strawberries. More labor intensive than I want to deal with.

  27. First off, your new blog design is perfect! I've been following you for years and have always enjoyed your content. You've really taken it to a whole new level with the layout, design, and photography now. And let me say, this no-bake tart is screaming my name!

  28. I have made this before and it is amazing! Presentation makes this the perfect dessert to bring to picnics or BBQs! I like to add blueberries or raspberries also to mix it up.

  29. I like to bake but not in the summer when it is so hot. This no bake recipe would be perfect for one of those days and it looks delicious too.

  30. This sounds yummy! I'm not sure that I will be able to find this type of cheese. Is there another kind that can be used?

  31. (No-Bake Dessert – Strawberry Mascarpone Tart) I am going to make this strawberry tart for our Memorial Day weekend family get together and celebration.

  32. This dessert would be one of my family's favorite. I will make it for my family reunion just because it is so beautiful.

  33. YUMMM! With Strawberry Season coming on here just now, I am going to be making this for sure!! LOVE its no bake ( I do love baking but need more no bake quick recipes) & sounds amazing! I know all 4 kids here will gobble it down for sure so we will probably have to make more than one! haha 🙂

  34. This sounds so good. We love strawberries at our house. It also looks so pretty. I love that you don't have to bake this. Perfect summer dessert. Thank you for sharing
