Fruit tarts are easy to prepare and have an amazing flavor. In addition, it is light and very tasty. It adds a special coziness to cold winter days with a cup of hot tea, that’s why I love it so much. You can also find many options on the blog, with different doughs and fillings. The combination of apple and cherry turned out to be extraordinary, it has a very good aroma and the flavors are quite well suited to each other.
