Reviews for Berry Delicious Tart
"My mom made this and brought it to a Memorial day party one year it was a huge hit and I have made it several more times. Fairly easy and tastes awesome!"
"This really is excellent. I used fat-free cream cheese & whole wheat flour. Next time I make it, I will skip the jam. It seems unnecessary, plus it makes the tart a bit runny.~ Theresa"
"Wonderful dessert, guests loved it. Cut brown sugar down for topping to 1/2 cup, served w/ a dollop of cool whip on side. Used seedless raspberry jam and 1 cup each of fresh raspberries and blueberries. Easy to prepare and a definite keeper."
"Delicious! hubby and I liked it cold better than warm. I used homemade rhubarb jelly and then just strawberries as the filling... Like a strawberry-rhubarb crumble! Very good!"
"This recipe deserves more than 5 stars. It was very wonderful. I took it to work and everyone just loved it. I friend co-worker even said that it was the best dessert she had ever had."
"I made this recently for a Father's Day gathering and everyone loved it. (My son said, "This is the best berry dessert you have ever made!) However, it is almost too sweet, so the next time I make it I will cut the sugar for the topping in half and see if it still provides enough sweetness. I may also eliminate the jam since I think it created too much moisture causing the dessert to be a little more runny that I would have preferred."
"Amazing! I love rich desserts and generally refuse to make any dessert actually healthy, but I decided to try reduced fat cream cheese...(first time ever) and it turned out fantastic! I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour in the crust...to add some more fiber with the berries! :) ... was simply delicious...no wheat-like flavor...just a wonderful recipe!"
"Wow..this is one of the best desserts I have ever had. I ate my piece soo slow so I could enjoy each bite, yes it's that good! Can't wait to make it again."
"Just as the name says, this recipe is delicious! I used seeded jam, and it wasn't a problem. I used a graham cracker crust which made it a little too sweet. It is a very sweet recipe to begin with! I will definitely make this again!"
