 Berries & Swedish Cream Tartlets
A friend of mine brought a similar tartlet to a party we were both attending. I knew I just had to have the recipe. I modified it and now my family loves them. Since they use mixed fresh berries, they are great anytime of the year.—Maria Gruetzmacher, Stillwater, Minnesota
