Strawberry Tart

This creamy strawberry tart boasts a crunchy chocolate layer tucked next to the crust. Try making individual tartlets instead of one big dessert. —Dawn Tringali, Hamilton Square, New Jersey

    SIMPLE ENOUGH AND PRETTY DESSERT, BUT FILLING VERY SIMILAR TO CREAM CHEESE ICING SO WAS TOO SWEET FOR MY TASTE EVEN WITH THE CHOCOLATE LAYER

    This was so delicious my guest just gobbled it up. I didn't have the chocolate so I made it without. Definitely a keeper.

    Tastes like a recipe from a master chef. My husband forwarned me that if I make one to take to a family gathering, I'd better make one to leave at home.
