Strawberry Mascarpone Tart

 I have hectic life lately, a lot of things to do, to choose and many place to go. 

 Because my house is under renovation, so I can't spend most of my time in the kitchen (actually I don't have kitchen right now, it's my backyard that I use as a kitchen, haha). Talking about the renovation, I never know that it will be this long -*-. Even I have to solve so many problems everyday, ^^", all the works went well so far. But I still wish that when I wake up tomorrow, everything done. 
Anyway I have to live my life this way and I have to be happy. So, I think I have to make something delicious and easy to lift up my mood.
This tart is the right answer, it's easy to make, lovely to see and delicious to eat. I use food processor for making the pastry but you can use your finger to mix the flour, sugar and butter together too. Only the pastry needs baking, the filling is soft mascarpone mousse with lovely strawberry jam (store bought is Ok, but I made mine in the microwave). The richness from the mousse goes well with sweetness from the jam and tangy sweet taste of the fresh berries.
Because the filling has no gelatin, it will be on a soft side. Keep the tart in the fridge, cut and serve immediately with a cup of hot tea is recommended.
