    What a beautiful tart, Judy! You really made your friends feel special when you set this on the table before them. Now *that’s* being hospitable!

      Thanks John, it does make someone feel special when you make that extra effort, though this it far easier than it looks. 🙂

      Thank you, Karen, the photos have gotten easier with the help from the lighting kit. Now I just have to learn my camera better — ha!

    What a delicious looking tart! So colorful and yummy!!! Love the crust! Yes, I do know what you mean about hospitality vs. entertaining. We gave a dinner party last night and I had to keep reminding my husband, the perfectionist – “it’s o.k. if it’s not perfect. Let’s just have fun!” 🙂 Hope you’re having a great weekend!

      Hi MJ, I do hope you had a wonderful time with your dinner party, it is far more enjoyable when we let go of perfectionism–I know how hard that is too–and our guests are more at ease as well. The tart is delicious and beautiful on any table; good thing it’s easier to make than it looks (love food like that!). 🙂

    This fruit tart is a creation of beauty! Love the shining fruit! And yes, having too many people over too often can really get overwhelming.

      Thanks Julia, I appreciate your kind comment! You are right, having too many, too often, can get overwhelming rather quickly–I learned to set healthy boundaries after crashing a couple of times. Knowing when to say ‘Yes’ is key. Good to see you in the comments again — have a great Sunday!

    Great looking tart! I love fruit tarts, both because of their eye appeal and their flavor is so awesome. And I absolutely am with you on the different between entertaining and hospitality. We used to do the former, and now practice only the latter. Great idea for a series.

    This looks beautiful, I love the idea of almond flour and am very tempted by your ‘not too sweet’ description.

    This would be perfect at my Easter Brunch. Judy, you really hit the nail on the head for me. As I have gotten a little older, I realize that it’s much better to be relaxed and create a menu that is pleasant but not overly ambitious. Hospitality is really a much friendlier way to think of “having people over” than entertaining. What a great post!

    I was so excited when I came across this recipe. I made it for my family last night and we all loved it. The crust was a little tricky to spread as it was very sticky, but well worth it. I will be making this again this weekend for Father’s Day. Thanks so much for a great recipe.

    Oh Judy what a magnificent looking fruit tart. I will definitely be making this something later this season after things have warmed up just a little more.
    Have a wonderful and happy day.

      Thanks, Mandy, it is and easy one that everyone loves. I always think of my blogging friends on the other side of the world as our seasons change … it is getting colder here, so I know you are ready to feel the warm sun on your face there. 🙂

    How long would I bake crust if I use mini tart pans ?

      Jean, I would start at 4-5 minutes, and then check it every minute or so. Even if the crust gets a little more than lightly browned it won’t hurt it. Think of it like toasting almonds, which is what the crust is primarily. The darker the crust, the more toasted almond flavor. 🙂
