Summer Harvest Tart Recipe

Summer Harvest Tart Recipe

One of my favorite bakeries makes this scrumptious tart that uses fall and summer fruit, so I created my own version. I like to serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream and with a cup of coffee on a cool autumn night.—Sarah Knoblock, Hyde Park, Indiana
