I am always looking for fun and delicious holiday desserts. This recipe happens to be a favorite for my family get togethers. It didn't start out as a Fourth of July dessert; instead just a ridiculously easy and yummy recipe that I would make in huge 9x13 pans to feed the masses. It has since evolved into mini individual tartelettes. And what better way to make it festive for a holiday such as Fourth of July, than topping it with some red and blue berries.
These are a great bite size treat for any occasion, and you probably already have the ingredients on hand! Since fruit is in abundance now thats its summer you can get as creative as you want with your toppings and use what your family likes best. I promise you will be sure to have all of your family and friends thinking you are a culinary chef when you whip these beauties out at your next gathering. So try this scrumptious and simple recipe with a big reward!
