I hope that your week is going great so far. Today, I want to share with you a super simple dessert that’s perfect for when you are in a pinch or when you are simply craving a sweet treat. Beat the HEAT with this simple and easy dessert for a crowd.
I don’t do this very often but I went with a frozen pastry tart as the base of this dessert. For one, they are simple to use and second they are very tasty and flaky.
This dessert literally only takes 17 minutes to prepare and yet it’s a delicious simple treat that you can dress up whatever way you like it.

Zesty Tip: How to ensure a tender pastry crust? Minimal handling helps to achieve a tender crust. Think of your fingers as feathers, gently mixing the dough. Handle the dough just enough to mix it and roll it- it’s that simple. Lots of handling lengthens the gluten in the flour, making a chewy pie crust.
Before I leave for another day, I was wondering - what is your favorite flavor of ice cream? For me I am pretty plain on most days and love vanilla ice cream. Sometimes, when I’m feeling adventurous, I branch into Neapolitan. Have a great hump day – the weekend will be here before you know it.
Stay tuned for some house pictures on Monday. The landscaping is complete and looks great!
