Berry Phyllo Tarts Recipe

Berry Phyllo Tarts Recipe

Lightly glazed fresh fruit nestled in delicate pastry creates a looks-like-you-fussed dessert. Shares TerryAnn Moore of Vineland, New Jersey. "One taste of the crisp-tender shell topped with sweet berries, and I don't miss those confections with more fat and sugar."
