It's that time of year again and I am thinking what I will serve at my Christmas Eve open house. I have completed one recipe so I am going to post it now. I do hope you all will enjoy this cute and sweet little tart made with a shortbread cookie recipe. My dear friend Diane Smith(DEE) posted this past year a black forest preserves recipe which I made and it was so good I thought wow what a good treat I could make with her jam recipe, so here it is and I have to try to link that reicpe with this one.
