Favorite Friday Recipe: Fruit tarts

(view of the strawberries my niece is growing in her little Florida garden)

One of the best parts about summer is the abundance of berries: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, you name it!  Today's recipe is simple and makes for a yummy and light dessert to top off your summer BBQ.

First, defrost a package of pastry puff (I used Pepperidge Farm here), cut them into squares (or rectangles or whatever your heart fancies) and bake according to package directions.  Then let cool.

In the meantime, whip up some instant vanilla pudding and place in the refrigerator to chill for a little while.  After the pastry puffs are cool to the touch, slice them in half...

And begin scooping some pudding into them...

Arrange fruit (California strawberries and Texas blueberries chosen here) on top of the pudding and you're all set!

Place them all in a lovely serving dish and remember to pace yourself when eating these!  Enjoy!

(I just had a thought that chocolate pudding would be really great in this too--with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.  Good thing I have another package of puff pastry in the freezer!)
