"I have made this many times since it first appeared in 1996, and I arrange the fruit like they did in the magazine, not like photo above. It is always a hit - GREAT RECIPE!"

"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!"
