Spring Has Sprung

It is really starting to feel like spring has arrived in Denver. I find there is an extra pep in my step in the morning when I walk out my door into the sunshine and warm air. When I think of a spring dessert any fruit involved dessert comes to mind. Hence the mini fruit tarts. One of my old roommates from college and Denver was in town this past week so I felt it was fitting to make these as welcome back to Denver treat. They were so so good! I have added them to my Easter menu so if you are looking for something delicious and adorable make these.

Side note: For dinner tonight we had asparagus risotto and grilled chicken. I added an egg yolk to mine and it was so tasty. The risotto was rich with flavor from the cheese, wine, and chicken stock and the asparagus added a light flavor. This could also be added to an Easter menu too…just sayin.
