  3. Place the tart pan in the pre-heated oven and let it bake for 7 minutes. When done, remove from the oven and let it completely cool down.
  4. Pour heavy whipping cream into a bowl and whip it for 2-3 minutes on high speed until it starts to thicken. Initially it will bubble before starting to thicken.
  5. When the cream is slowly thickening, add ¼ sup of sugar at that point.
  6. Keep whipping on high speed for approximately 5-7 minutes, or until you see stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  7. In a different bowl, add mascarpone chase, vanilla extract, cinnamon and the remaining powdered sugar. Mix the contents on low speed until they are combined. Do not increase the speed and do not over mix.

  10. Enjoy the delicious desert!
