These little tarts are big on flavor. What an awesome treat Lynn. The shell is similiar to a shortbread cookie filled with a tasty raspberry jam and almond filling. Topped with whipped cream, I ask you could anything be better. Thank you so much for sharing this winner. It was quick and easy to make and tastes great. I will be enjoying these again, I can't wait to try them with apricot jam.
