Hi, this is Julie from Confessions of a Cooking Diva, I’m so excited to be here today and share my Rustic Strawberry Tart with you.
This is one of my absolute favorite recipes to make and I make it year-around. The beauty of this recipe is that you can make this with any fruit or combination of fruits. I’ve made it with blueberries and strawberries, perfect for 4th of July.
If you are having last minute guests over for dinner this is a quick dessert to put together and stick in the oven. All you need is a prepared pie crust, some cut-up fruit and, voila, you have dessert.
Make sure you don’t miss any of the fun stuff Confessions of a Cooking Diva is up too!
