Made as directed for a dinner party with refrigerated, rollout crust with the exception of reducing amount of sugar. Easy to assemble and was a nice, light desert. Everyone enjoyed and complimented. Hubby enjoyed leftovers the next day. Will keep this tart as a go to for quick, easy summer desert.

I started with this recipe but like so many others I added my own twist. I made the crust from scratch. Got the recipe off the graham cracker crumb box and added "Just Bunches" cereal I ran through the food processor for some extra crunch. I used cream cheese instead of mascarpone for the filling. For the berries I had to mix frozen and fresh as I couldn't find enough nice looking berries so I cooked them on the stove briefly with the 1/4 cup of sugar. This was for an office birthday so I also made them in a DeMarle mini-Brioche tray so we had individual tarts. Everyone LOVED them!

An easy and beautiful tart. The filling goes together quickly and is subtley flavored - a perfect accompaniment for the colorful pile of berries on top. I used all of the types of berries listed, but kind of winged it on the amounts - just arranged them as seemed best. Thanks for a great, easy dessert!
