Easy Fruit Tart

I usually make this easy dessert for family parties, small get togethers and when I have my little mommy group lunches at my house. These are super easy to make and it’s so refreshing and delicious. 

 

Ingredients:

  • Vanilla Pudding Mix 
  • Fillo Dough Cups 
  • Fresh Fruit ( I like to use blueberries and raspberries )

Directions:

  • Make your Vanilla Pudding Mix and set aside or back in the fridge 
  • Bake / Toast your Fillo dough cups in the oven and wash your fruits 
  • Add the Vanilla Pudding into the Fillo Dough Cups and top it off with your fresh fruit 

 

I “Confess” that it will probably take you less then 20 mins to make these fruit tarts

What you will need:

  • Potpourri
  • And size glass container
  • Hay Rope, Twine , or any colored ribbon
  • and or candle

Directions: 

  • Pour the potpourri in the glass container to the top or leave it half way and add room for a candle
  • Tie rope, twine or ribbon around the glass container to give it more color or decor

I have to “Confess” that this whole project cost me less then $4
