'A taste you'll never forget.'

Plum Cakey Tart

Rating: 4.5 stars 23
I had some fresh plums that my husband hadn't eaten, and came up with this delicious dessert. EASY and delicious! This can be used with other stone fruit like peaches or nectarines, and I bet it would be good with apples or pears in the fall! Delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream.

Fruit Pizza I

Rating: 4.5 stars 782
A cookie dough crust, cream cheese filling, and fruit topping. Tip: For a quick crust, use one package of ready made sugar cookie dough rolled out to fit a pizza pan. Use an assortment of fresh fruit such as bananas, peaches, blueberries, kiwi, pineapple, and strawberries.

Pear and Almond Tart (Dairy- and Gluten-Free)

Rating: 5 stars 8
Easy non-dairy and gluten-free recipe for a classic pear and almond tart. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar on top if desired.

Apple Tartlets

Rating: 4.5 stars 15
This is one of my fall favorite quick recipes to use those lovely little red apples my backyard tree provides! It's beautiful but also tasty - a great treat or dessert to make for company or bring to a party.

Fresh Strawberry Tart

Rating: 4.5 stars 10
This free-form strawberry tart in a buttercrust pastry is thickly glazed and beautiful. You can use a tart pan, but going free-form is kind of fun. Be sure to use perfectly ripe, sweet strawberries.

Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Cheese Tart

Rating: 5 stars 16
Luscious lemon cheese filling with blueberry topping.

Cherry Folditup

Rating: 5 stars 12
Why am I calling this a cherry folditup, and not a cherry galette, its correct culinary name? Because one sounds like something that's easy to make, and one doesn't.

Raspberry Tart

Fresh summer raspberries in raspberry jam on a buttery crust.

White Chocolate-Cream Cheese Fruit Tart

Rating: 5 stars 4
This tart recipe is easy and so delicious! The crust is crisp and buttery. Any combination of fresh fruits can be used. I used strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.

Pastiera di Pasqua (Italian Easter Tart with Ricotta)

This orange-flavored Italian Easter tart recipe is a classic dessert from Naples. Sometimes referred to as a "Neapolitan grain pie", pastiera di pasqua is made with cooked wheat grains and ricotta cheese.

Favorite Apple Galette

Rating: 4 stars 18
If you love pie, and your favorite part is the pastry, look no further. This pie will sure to be a new family favorite. This pastry dough is almost like a shortbread. It would also go well with pears or peaches. You don't even necessarily have to peel the apples!
