If you want to impress the guests this on is it!!!

This recipe is super moist and a hit. I have used other berries such as blackberry,blueberry and cherry, whatever is in season. This dessert can be made ahead a day or two and put berries on just before serving

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This tart isn't overly sweet ... perfect for our taste buds. The flavors of raspberry and marzipan were delish. Next time, I may try another fruit like Trish suggests. A great dessert that will impress your guests!
