Like the classic French fresh fruit tarts you see in pastry shops, this American berry tart has serious panache. But we want you to enjoy your July Fourth celebration, so we came up with a simpler approach.
We've replaced the pastry cream filling with a sweetened cream cheese, and used a simple press-in crust. And if you can't be bothered to arrange your berries neatly, you can just pile them on top.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and you have the perfect, impressive summertime dessert.
