Peach Tartlets

Tarts are special treats that show off summer fruits so sweetly. The pastry is rich, tender and crunchy, almost like a cookie. I use it for every type of tart I can think of. —Leanne Wheless, Borger, Texas

    I liked it, but I would not make it for a long time.

    I didn't do the whole receipt, because my sister has to have gluten free food, but I knew she liked peaches. I only made the filling then refrigerated it over night. The next day I put the peaches into little serving bowls with whip topping on top of them. My family really seemed to enjoyed how sweet they were. I would make them again.
