Mid Week Munchies


Hey Friends....
Exciting News: Every Wednesday is now going to be Mid Week Munchies
I'm excited, this will keep me posting about food (which I love) and I always make something mid week 'cause I've got the munchies. To kick things off I got the best recipe to share.
Fresh Raspberry Tart:
Crust
1 1/2 cups four
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup margarine
1/4 powdered sugar

I blended these 4 ingredients in my Cuisinart, very quick and easy. I patted the crust into my fluted pan and cooked it @ 350 degrees for about 12 minutes ~ just until it was lightly brown.

When I made this tart I was able to go and pick the raspberry FRESH! Heaven. These raspberries were to good to be true and the were also to beautiful to eat.

To give my tart the little glue it needed I sparingly, spread some apricot jam on the crust(credit to Jeanette for that idea!). I placed the berries symmetrically around the pan; this made it fun and I loved the presentation. With the remaining jam; I heated it in the microwave for about 25 seconds (which turned/melted it into a kinda of glaze) and then poured it over the berries!


I kept it chilled it in the fridge until it was time to eat. This tart will be a family favorite every raspberry season.
