This lovely versatile tart shows up regularly at family gatherings. I can customize it for any holiday occasion by using different-shaped cookie cutouts...or different fruit fillings. And even my picky children gobble it up!

"Lovely tart. I adjusted the recipe to fit a 9- inch tart pan. Served with vanilla whipped cream. Everyone went nuts over it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 26, 2010

"I made several of these tarts last Christmas to give away as gifts. I included the tart pan and the recipie as part of the gift.I made the dough in my food processor and it went together in a "snap"Instead of the cutouts on the pie,I put a lattice top. When the tart was done and cooled, I sprinkled it with confectioners sugar. It got rave reviews !!! It's quite spectacular and easy to makeNan C Huntington,Long Island,NY"
