            I made this today and thought not only was it beautiful but delicious! The crust is perfect. I had to use a mini tart pan. I piled each one high with kiwi, rasberries, blue berries and strawberries.
            This would be great for company or a romantic dinner. Thanks for posting this recipe!

                We couldn't find vanilla chips at Lunardi's so we used white chocolate chips and I added 1 tsp of vanilla. It came out yummy! And beautiful! Everyone had seconds. I asked my daughter (16) to rate this recipe and she gave it 10 hearts even though she knew the limit was 5. It's a winner!

                      Nancy, how come you've never made this for me to try? It looks absolutely delicious so I guess I will have to make it for myself! :0)

                        Wow, this sounds delicious! It reminds me of a fruit pizza recipe my friend makes. Can't wait to try it!
