Thanks a lot for these patries they are really very good.<br/><br/>The dought was perfect and will keep the recipe for other variations, The filling idea is great and the topping yummy.<br/>This recipe is very versatile, changing the fruits and topping. I love your idea to use muffins mold as in this way we can prepare small portions and ca be served for party, as dessert to share at work/school without cutting a tart and even without plate!
