I got this recipe in the mail from Kroger grocery stores. I thought the recipe sounded delicious, so wanted to post it before it slipped away into file 13. As Kroger has stated, "This easy tart makes a perfect Mother's Day treat. I would have to agree. I can imagine this tart being topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries, but I think it would also be wonderful topped with just one kind of berry, your choice. Enjoy! Hands-on-time:20mins. Total time:2hrs.
