Raspberry-Topped Cream Tarts
These tarts are as pretty to look at as they are good to eat! Crispy tortilla cups are filled with cream cheese mixture and topped with fresh raspberries. They're also delicious with sliced strawberries. -Kathy Rairigh of Milford, Indiana

These are so good. I really like the combination of flavors. Perfect when fresh raspberries are in season.
