My whole family loves my fruit tart. Usually I would have to double the recipe to satisfy them! It is just so good! This recipe is really straightforward to make as you don’t have to use cold butter and rub it in. Instead, you cream it as if you are making a cake. You will sure to impress your family and friends and they will sure to ask for the recipe!IMG_6300EDITEDsmall
