Reviews forPeaches 'n' Cream Raspberry Tart
"I have been making this exact tart since the 1980s. It originally appeared on the cover of the Better Homes & Gardens magazine. I immediately went out and bought a tart pan. I make my own coconut macaroons for this recipe. It is my family's favorite summer dessert. Canned peaches will NOT work as well, but if you must make it in the off season, they will do in a pinch. DO NOT overcook the crust. 15 minutes is usually plenty of baking time. Blackberries or Boysenberries will also work nicely in place of the Raspberries. It's my favorite dessert to make. ---Maureen Murphy, Portland, OR"
"I am a big fan of macaroons and made this recipe which was delicious. I wouldn't change a thing and think canned peaches would work as well when peaches are out of seasonII"
"I made this and it was delicious! I was in a hurry and couldn't find soft macaroons so I substituted the hard, flat macaroons and it still came out great."
