Fresh Fruit Tart Recipe

July 28, 2013

Need a dessert that’s yummy but easy to make?  This fresh fruit tart looks and tastes “fancy” but it truly is easy.  I made this recipe twice in the past week and I only wish that I had taken a photo.  Next time!

Here is fresh summer salad that makes a beautiful presentation.  I hadn’t made it in years but it was just the right side dish for a barbeque at the beach!  Not to worry if you can’t find “heirloom” tomatoes.  Any ripe tomatoes of different colors and sizes will work.  Serve it on a large platter with the grilled bread on the side.  Oh, summer tomatoes!

A friend at church recently asked for the recipe to these fabulous scones.  Easy to make and even enticing enough for Blake to indulge in, give this recipe a try!  They will become a regular on your breakfast/brunch menu.


Confessions of a Tart: Strawberry Scones.


I like to divide the dough in half and make smaller scones.  Also, I frost them with a lemon glaze…

1 cup powered sugar

1/2 tbsp melted butter

1/2 tbsp milk (I have skipped this!)

fresh lemon juice-enough to get the consistency that you want
