Half of the mascarpone mixture, followed by half of the fresh raspberries, should be spread over the jam mixture. In the same manner, layer the remaining ladyfingers, jam mixture, mascarpone mixture, and raspberries. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.

2. Chocolate Tart
Chocolate tart is a classic gourmet treat. You must remember begging your mother to buy you a chocolate dessert when you were a kid. You may now bake your mum her own tart for Mother’s Day and bring a smile to her face.

- 1 salted butter stick (8 tablespoons) melted
- 1/2 gallon heavy cream
- 3 tblsp butter (salted)
- 12 ounces chopped dark chocolate
- 12 ounces chopped milk chocolate
Chocolate Curl Garnish:
- white chocolate, 4 oz.
- coconut oil (two teaspoons)
- To make the crust, pulse the cookies in a food processor until fine crumbs appear. In a food processor, pulsate the melted butter into the mixture. To make a uniform crust on the bottom and sides, use a 1/4-cup measure to press the mixture into an 11-inch fluted tart pan with a detachable bottom. Place it in the freezer for 15 minutes to solidify it.
- To make the ganache, heat the cream and butter in a saucepan until the liquid begins to bubble.
- In a mixing bowl, pour the hot cream and butter over the dark and milk chocolate. In a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients until completely melted and combined, then pour into the chilled tart shell. Allow the tart to harden up in the refrigerator for at least one night.
- To make the chocolate curls, melt the white chocolate and coconut oil together in a basin over a pan of hot water, stirring constantly. Spread the melted mixture in a thin layer on the underside of a clean baking sheet with an offset spatula or knife. Freeze it for about 2 minutes, or until it’s firm.
- Using a sharp-edged spatula, scrape the chocolate from the bottom of the baking sheet into curls. Sprinkle the curls on top of the tart after removing it from the pan.
3. Strawberry Cheese Cake
Strawberry Cheese Cake is a fun twist on traditional cheesecake. This version has a deep and weighty feel to it. This gastronomical delicacy is filled with airy layers and a crunchy crust. You may make your mother happy by making this for her on Mother’s Day.

Pulse 1/4 cup sugar in a food processor until it’s coarsely crushed. Drizzle the butter into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles wet sand.

Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl after each addition. For about 1 minute, or until smooth, mix in the vanilla and 3 teaspoons rose water. Fill the pie crust with the ingredients. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the center is firm but still jiggles, on the middle oven rack (above the water bath). Close the oven door and leave the cheesecake to cool for 1 hour. Remove the dish from the oven, cover, and cool for at least 4 hours.
