    Dessert for Thanksgiving

    Laura Grillo from MI

    I came across this while looking for desserts to make for my family's Thanksgiving gathering. Anytime I see something with fresh fruit on it, I have to take a look. This is what I will be making and I can't wait to put this on the dessert table. It looks so delicious!

    Unassuming but Terrific

    Cush Bhada from Redondo Beach, CA

    Unassuming but Terrific! Quite easy to make in spite of a few steps. We made this for a Birthday Dinner and also had a store bought backup dessert just in case. However, this was a HIT! The orange juice gives it such a delightful flavour.

    Fresh Berry Tart

    IDA BEEK from LANDING, NJ

    This is the perfect summer dessert when the berries are at their most flavorful. I made this yesterday morning for a special dinner at home and it was such a hit I was asked to make two to bring to a Fourth of July picnic we're invited to. The custard was creamy and smooth and the glaze and berries made this the best dessert we've had in a long time. Each bite was savored to appreciate the combination of custard and berries.

    Melody Adams from LAKEWOOD, WA

    What a great Tart delicious and fill of good for you things. This was very easy for me to make and my family not only ate every bit of it, but asked for more as well. I made another one, but was out of graham crackers so I used vinilla waffers in place of, this to was very good. I don't think you could go wrong with this recipe. Any way the second one was eaten later on in the early evening and it was gone even quicker than the 1st because everybody was ready for it. As my Granddaughter said "totally great".

    1st time tart- easy

    Diane Bacher from MONROEVILLE, NJ

    This was the 1st time I made a fruit tart. My new in-laws own a blueberry farm, so I was looking for things to make. This was easy and everyone loved it durning a family picnic. Instead of jar jelly I cooked up some blueberries with cornstarch to create a glaze. I made 2, 1 with tart pan and 1 with ready made grham crust.

    Great Berry Dessert

    Carol Ragghianti from ADDISON, TX

    This is a great berry dessert, and easy to make. Did substiute regular sugar and less to make lighter, and natural strawberry jam instead of raspberry, but sure works well either way. Enjoyed by all.

    Red, White, and Blue!

    Mary Ann Dawson from MILWAUKEE, WI

    I made this for a 4th of July gathering and it was as popular as fireworks! I think I'll make it on the 4th of August and September -- and whenever I can get fresh strawberries and blueberries.

    Unbelievable!

    Debra Schwitzer from Hiram, GA

    I made this for 4th of July dessert and slightly modified (I used Splenda instead of Sugar in the crust)to allow my diabetic father-in-law to sample. Well, my husband raved but I was a little disappointed until I ate a piece the next day. Then I raved too. Allow this to set up in the refrigerator one day and the flavors really infuse. I used fresh berries (black, rasp, & blue.) This is a KEEPER!

    Custard Tart with Fresh Berries

    SYLVIA BAHNSEN from COLCHESTER, CT

    I found this recipe the first time I tried to make it a little challenging. It came out dry and cracked, but I was trying to do it with the help of my three year old and my husband. When I re-did it the next day, it came out perfect!!!! I have a very large garden and was fortunate enough to have the fresh berries on hand so I used those and with a little peice and quiet accomplished making a wonderful summer time dessert. I highly recommend this recipe for a bring along to a dinner invitation or to a picnic... You'll be the hit of the party and definitely will be ask to bring it along again!!!!

    Scrumptous & Delicate

    dawn bordenave from NEW ORLEANS, LA

    On Sunday afternoon, I had the whim of baking something cool for Sunday's dessert. It was very hot. A few days ago, I printed this recipe and finally decided to give it a try. I changed it a little by substituting all ingredients with fat-free and sugar free products with the addition of my homemade lemon filling recipe and homemade whipped cream to top it off. The kids and husband enjoyed it. They could not stop saying how much they loved it. The best thing for me is the 10 fat calories per serving with the substitutions. I just would like to thank the person, who submitted this recipe. It's simple, quick and delicious. I plan to make 2 more tarts for Father's Day. I love it. Thanks again.
