This is delicious and everyone I have ever served it to has loved it, especially in the summer with fresh peaches on top. I have been making this for many years and stopped using pineapple juice and use water instead for the glaze. At Christmas I use strawberries and kiwi on top.

Hi; White Sugar chips are not good. Please so not use these, They are discusting. Pls do a recipe with custard cream. Make it real. This COULD be the best Berry Custard tart Ever. White sugar chips are all flour and sugar . They are horrible. Do a real berry tart with real solid custard for the filling and you have GRAND DESERT. I will NOT make this

This was quite delicious! I cut the recipe in half and made it in a smaller tart pan. I baked the crust for only about 21 minutes or so. I personally don't like white chocolate at all, but still really enjoyed this. I'd really like to see how it would taste with chocolate chips instead of the white ones though. I'll try that next time! I skipped the strawberries and did blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries. We felt the leftovers tasted even better the next day. I'd make this one again!

Love the crust and glazed berries. I didn't care for the white chocolate in the cream cheese layer. Have made for picnics and makes nice presentation.

This was amazing! I didn't glaze the berries - the tartness went well with the sweetness of the cream.

I have been making this fruit tart ever since it was first published in the 90s. It is one of my family's all-time favorites. I have used everything from strawberries & raspberries in the spring, peaches, plums & other stone fruits in the summer, apples & pears and fall and whatever looked good in the store in the winter. It's always been fantastic. It even worked well when I used dairy-free products when I needed to have a dessert for a lactose-intolerant guest.

I have a similar recipe that combines cream cheese with confectioners sugar so I thought I would try a different version. It was yummy and a nice contrast against the blueberry compote I made for the top (compote is combination of blueberries, water,sugar and constarch) I also outlined the blueberries with fresh strawberries !!!

I added 2 peeled & halved Kiwis for color, it was beautiful & delicious. I had to write down the recipe for 4 of my guests!

Awesome! Nothing needs to be changed. Perfect the way it is. I served it to company with a dollop of homemade whipped cream. Everyone raved about it. It tastes like a tart you would buy in a fine bakery. I must admit I did add 1 tsp. of vanilla to the crust mixture but I like vanilla. It is definitely a special dessert!! I made it the same day. I cooled the crust briefly then stuck it in the freezer for about 10-15 min to cool down more. Set timer so you won't forget. Cooled down sauce the same way. I used fresh blueberries, raspberries, and sliced strawberries. I will increase the amount of each fruit next time. Yum!!!

I have made this many times since it first appeared in 1996, and I arrange the fruit like they did in the magazine, not like photo above. It is always a hit - GREAT RECIPE!
