  • 9 1/2-inch tart pan
  • Baking sheet
  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Mixing bowl
  • Small skillet


For the crust:

  • 3 cup peanut butter cookie crumbs about 14-16 medium-sized cookies
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter 1 stick melted and cooled

For The filling:

  • 8 oz mascarpone, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 5-6 tbsp hazelnut flavored liquor like Frangelico

For the topping:

  • 3 tbsp raspberry jam
  • 2 tbsp raspberry/blackberry liquor like Chambord
  • 2 tbsp peanuts chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

To make the crust:

  • Grease a 9 ½ inch tart pan. Place it on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the cookie crumbs and the melted butter. Stir to combine. Press the mixture firmly into the bottom and sides of the tart pan. 
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes. Then, allow it to cool.
    If you would like to remove the crust from the pan, I suggest freezing it for at least an hour. Then the crust should pop right out. Also, the crust can be made and frozen up to 24 hours in advance and then kept in the freezer until you are ready to fill it.

To make the filling:

  • In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or using a hand-held mixer, beat together the mascarpone, peanut butter and powder sugar until smooth and creamy for about 3-5 minutes. Add in the liquor and beat until incorporated, about another minute. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream until it’s whipped and soft peaks have formed. Add in the peanut butter mixture and, using a spatula, gently fold the two together. If it’s not fully mixed and there are still a few small streaks of cream throughout, that is ok.

To assemble the tart:

  • Simply spread the creamy peanut butter mixture into the crust. 
  • In a small skillet over medium heat, combine the jam and berry liquor. Stir continuously until the jam has melted down and the sauce begins to thicken. The sauce should start to bubble and boil, at which point you’ll want to cook it for only about another minute.
  • Remove it from the heat and, working quickly (as it does harden), drizzle the sauce across the top of the tart.
  • Sprinkle with chopped peanuts and serve.


  • Makes 8-10 servings.
  • Cover any remaining tart with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator. The tart tastes best eaten within the first few days of being made.
