  3. Add your mascarpone to the sugar/egg mix and whip for another minute or until well blended.
  4. Roll out puff pastry dough onto a well floured baking sheet and add your mascarpone custard mix to the center (about ¼ cup onto each sheet or ½ cup total if using larger sheet).
  5. Layer pastry sheet with citrus being sure to leave at least a good ½" border of dough bare for folding over.

  9. Dust with powdered sugar and serve with remaining custard mix (optional).
