Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
Absolutely wonderful! Well worth the time and effort. THE perfect dessert to impress!
I made this recipe for a work baking contest. I made one for work and a smaller one for home. My kids have asked how come work got the bigger one and wants me to make it again. Everyone raved about the flavor combinations.
This was wonderful. I made this for a lady's get together. It's delicious, transport's nicely, slice's perfectly. Ice cream or whipping cream on top or on the side adds to this treat.
Chocolate & Berry Tart
This is just the dessert to make that impresses the Boss and spouse. It looks as though it comes from a upscale boutique bakery. The taste is excellent. I do not think this receipe is difficult but then I do a lot of baking.
this tastes as good as it looks! Love the chocolate and pecans added to the "graham cracker" crust. White chocolate cheesecake layer perfectly melds the crust and Strawberry topping flavors and textures. Already have requests for Bake Again!
