4th of july is just around the corner now so I though I would bring to you this easy red, white and blue dessert to celebrate! I hope your menu isn’t completely scheduled yet, and if it is, you should consider changing it a little bit.
This tart is light, creamy and crispy at the same time. Believe me, it will disappear from your guests’s plates in no time. And because you don’t want to spend the whole day in your kitchen, it comes together very quickly. Need to say more?
Put some phyllo dough rectangles in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
Spread some ricotta cheese with sugar.
Shape a flag with some raspberries and blackberries. And you’re done! See? Easy.
