This summer I put each of my children in charge of making dinner one day a week.  I am hoping it helps them prepare for life after they move out.  My daughter loves to be in the kitchen with me so I was surprised when she showed zero interest in my dinner project.  When asked about her lack of enthusiasm, she asked “Can’t I just make the dessert?”  I have apparently passed on my love of baking and sweets to my daughter!  This simple summer dessert is one that your kids can make (with a little help from you if they are small) and you can customize the fruit on top to whichever are family favorites in your house.

June Fresh Savings Easy Summer Dessert Recipe

The crust to this fruit tart is really just a simple sugar cookie recipe, pressed into a tart pan and baked until golden brown.  If you double the recipe you can press it into a pizza pan and have enough for a crowd.  I used Yoplait Vanilla Greek Yogurt and tons of fresh fruit that I picked up at Publix.  With the June Fresh Savings event going on this month is is easy to get creative in the kitchen!  Look for ways to pair your favorite products with fresh grocery store items. Save on smart-start breakfast pairing, a great dinner combination or a spin on dessert!
