Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this tart today and it's quite good,like a French pastry,pretty and tasty. Easy to make,and not expensive.
Thank you!
I Enjoyed The Easy Prep Time.
This was a wonderful, easy recipe. The crust is thick, like a shortbread cookie, and the filling is similar to a simple sour cream cheesecake filling. Made this to take to a BBQ and it was a big hit.
Thank you!
With 5 grandchildren this was a simple recipe to not only make but serve. Everything in one pan. But the taste was the best thing...when they ask if I'll make it again AND take seconds that says it all.
I'm sorry but this did not turn out very good. I thought the crust was too thick and the filling tasted like eggs. The best part was the strawberries.
