Fruit Tart

Fruit Tart

I love my small group.  What is a small group?  A Bible study of sorts, but also an extension of family.  We meet every week, have devotional time, pray, and eat snacks together.

When it’s my turn to bring snacks, I like to try new recipe’s. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. My small group is my guinea-pig testing group. They seemed to enjoy this fruit tart, so we dispersed the leftovers to different homes at the end….except for ours.  The problem is that if we have sweets in the house: we see it, we inhale it. I would look like a roly poly if I left any sweets at our house. I don’t want to look like a roly poly.

I’ve been wanting to make a fruit tart for ages and finally found a recipe that seemed manageable, and adapted it to my own liking.  What takes the longest time is waiting for the dough to thaw, and cutting up all the fruit. The fun thing with this recipe is that you can use any fruit that you want, I just happened to pick what looked the most delicious and ripe at the time.

Hope you enjoy!
