Almond Fruit Tarts
Why I Love This Recipe
I know it's not quite rhubarb season yet! But in reorganizing my recipes the other day, I came across this gem that I'd forgotten about because it got buried in that 'sort out soon' section! lol Now I've got it properly filed and am waiting anxiously for the fresh rhubarb season to begin! This is just one morewonderful way to use up some of that seasonal fruit!
