MY REVIEW

Went to a dessert party last night and brought this tart. It was the first time I had made it. Followed the recipe exactly, except added blackberries as well. I got compliments for how pretty the tart looked, but word spread fast that it was equally as good. It was the first to go. Thanks for the great recipe!

It was really easy to make. I made it for my family and everybody loved it. If you haven't tried a fruit tart like this I recommend you make one. It's simple and looks great when served.

Shortbread base covered with sweet creamy vanilla layer made with creamed cheese and white chocolate topped with fresh seasonal fruit. Not only is it delicious, it presents so beautifully. What's not to love. I began making it about 10 years ago and now my daughters make it for specail ocassions for their friends. Have fun and enjoy!
