"Melanie Barnard, nationally acclaimed cookbook author of “Short and Sweet, Sophisticated Desserts in No Time at All,” recommends serving this bejeweled dessert in individual tart pans, tiny tartlets or mini-muffin tins." If you want to make it truly decadent make some fruit liquer whipped cream with a few chopped almonds. This was delicious! Found on mealsforyou.
