Apricot Blackberry Jewels

5

Jewels, gems, nuggets…whatever you want to call them, these magnificent deconstructed crustless hand tarts are possibly the best dessert you could make all summer.  And I don’t have to tell you how ripe and fresh California apricots and blackberries are now, right?  That’s a given.

Fresh blackberries, nestled into a fluffy bed of sweet cream cheese all atop a luscious apricot.  Your guests’ knees will be weak.  Trust me.

Not only is this a delicious dessert, it is beautiful to admire visually and even more rewarding to serve.  And guess what?  

It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and serve!

 Let’s get to it…

Drizzle honey over each jewel to let it glisten.  Pop under the broiler to toast up a bit and voila…

Delightful, flavorful, show stopping treats

You can pick them up right off the platter with your hand and eat them, or serve two jewels together in a dish!
