Berries & Swedish Cream Tartlets Recipe

A friend of mine brought a similar tartlet to a party we were both attending. I knew I just had to have the recipe. I modified it and now my family loves them. Since they use mixed fresh berries, they are great anytime of the year.—Maria Gruetzmacher, Stillwater, Minnesota

"These were tasty. The cream was not as smooth as I would have like, with some "chunks" in it from the gelatin that wouldn't go away no matter how hard I stirred. The chunks were less obvious once the dessert was put together in the shells. Everyone liked them. Topped with strawberries and blueberries."

"These were a BIG hit!! Great recipe. The only thing I had questions on the the Phyllo dough. I had never used them before and the pkg directions were not that clear. But they turned out amazing."
