Fruit Tarts


Fruit Tarts are oner of the most common dessert finger food in Italy.

They are so good and so colored that are perfect for your parties or you tea parties.

You can fill them how you prefer, in this case I decided for an orange cream.

You can decorate with the season fruits and it will be always a success!
