Chill dough in freezer 10 minutes then line with aluminum foil and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Carefully remove weights and foil and bake until golden brown, another 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool. Spread jam on crust. Prepare filling: Using electric mixer, beat mascarpone, cream, powdered sugar, lemon peel, and both extracts in large bowl until peaks form. Spread filling evenly in cooled crust. Chill until firm. Arrange berries or fruit on top and serve.
