I love white chocolate and I love cheesecake...so this is one of my preferred desserts. The combination of my mom's flaky pie crust with sweet white chocolate raspberry filling is perfect. The pie crust for this recipe may seem slightly dry and may crack when rolling out. However, the less water you use, the flakier the crust will be.—Layna Hendrich, Cody, Wyoming
I serve these fresh-fruit tarts every July at my family's Independence Day celebration. Sometimes I substitute blackberries with blackberry jam, and I often add slivered almonds to the fillings. —Nicole Chatron, Tulsa, Oklahoma
