Easy Fruit Tarts

Easy Fruit Tarts were the biggest hit of Jellopalooza.  While they didn’t turn out quite as pretty as the picture in the book, they were still visually appealing and tasty.  I splurged on some gourmet tart shells from Sur La Table.  This was the first recipe in the book that called for Jell-O pudding, so I made the vanilla pudding, chilled it and poured it into the shells.  I then topped the tarts with blackberries, blueberries, and grapes and covered it with a glaze of strawberry gelatin. The recipe recommended strawberry, raspberry or orange gelatin. Next time, I might try orange so the glaze is a bit lighter in color.  The sidebar in the cookbook states: “A beautiful fruit glaze is the secret of professional-looking continental desserts.”  Who knew jello could be so continental?

Easy Fruit Tarts scored 4.6 (on a scale of 1 – 5) from my Jellopalooza guests, making it the highest-rated dish!

Some comments…

“Tasty and pretty” – Larisa
“Swanky, upscale dessert” – Mary

I would definitely make these again.
