Creamy meets crunchy when a layer of velvety lime-flavored mascarpone-ricotta mousse and tart lime curd come together in a rustic pistachio shell in this Lime-Pistachio Tart. It may look like a cheesecake, but it is lighter and airier—a fitting finale to a spring get-together. Indeed, the green zest garnish lends itself quite nicely to a Saint Patrick's Day meal.
Start preparing this dessert at least two days before you plan to serve it. You can prepare the curd and crust dough up to 3 days in advance. The day before serving, bake the crust, top with the lime curd and the mascarpone-ricotta filling, and refrigerate. Pull it out of the fridge come dessert time.
