Recipe by Jostlori
Mamma's Berry Tart is a popular dessert in Finland. The word "Mamma" comes from the Swedish word "Mum", so it's not quite certain if the recipe is Finnish or Swedish. But it's good all the same! Who can possibly resist crispy buttery pastry filled with berries and topped with creamy filling??? From the Scandi-Home cooking blog.
