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

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! The Test Kitchen
