Makes six individually-sized tarts

Ingredients

6 mini tart shells
1 cup champagne or sparkling wine
1/2 cup apricot jam
1 lb fresh strawberries, blueberries or other mixed fruit, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 cups mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions

In a small saucepan, combine apricot jam with one cup of champagne or sparkling wine over medium heat. Boil until reduced by half, about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a small bowl to cool.

Stir together fruit and granulated sugar in a bowl and let stand, stirring occasionally, 30 minutes. Strain in a sieve set over a small saucepan, reserving fruit.

Meanwhile, whisk together mascarpone cheese, confectioners sugar, lemon juice, zest, vanilla, and a pinch of salt until stiff.

To assemble the tarts, distribute mascarpone cheese mixture evenly among tart shells, then top with fruit. Drizzle champagne-apricot glaze over the top of each tart. Serve immediately, or make the tarts a day before your party and refrigerate until serving.
