6070 Min

Most of us are familiar with panna cotta as a dessert from our favorite Italian restaurant. The cream can be used in other sweet delicacies too. Whoever you are making this creamy panna cotta tart with strawberries for, and whatever the occasion, you are sure to put a smile on people's faces.

Ingredients 6 Portions


  1. 1

    First prepare the pastry dough. Mix the flour with the sugar, Bourbon Vanilla Sugar and salt. Then cut the butter into pieces and add to the flour along with the egg. Use your hands to knead the dough well then allow it to rest in plastic wrap for 30 minutes in the fridge.

  2. 2

    Grease a round tart tin (approx. 26 cm diameter) with butter. Roll the dough out thinly (approx. 30 cm diameter) and place on top; trim the edges and press down. Use a fork to prick a few holes in the base and fill with lentils to blind bake.

  3. 3

    Now bake the tart base in the oven at 190 °C for 20–25 minutes until it is golden brown. Allow the base to cool for an hour then remove it from the tin.

  4. 4

    Meanwhile, prepare the panna cotta cream. Bring the Agartine with 100 ml of water to the boil for 2 minutes, then stir in 150 ml of cold water.

  5. 5

    Put the unwhipped whipping cream into a pan with the sugar and allow to simmer lightly for around 5 minutes.

  6. 6

    Then add the mascarpone and stir in. Stir in the vanilla pulp from the pods, the ground cardamom and the lemon zest. Allow to cook for another 5 minutes.

  7. 7

    Now remove the pan from the heat and stir the Agartine liquid into the cream. Pour the panna cotta cream onto the tart base and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

  8. 8

    When the tart is ready, decorate with strawberries before serving.
