4 Berry Cheese Tart

Leonie's 4 berry cheese tart was a wonderful surprise at this years Christmas days celebrations at Marc and Leonies home. Both of them as well as Marc's mum Angela have been very close friends 

for 20 years now and we consider them and their sons Leon, Ethan and Jaden family!

The cheese tart turned out a perfect balance of not too sweet,  very creamy and exquisitely fruity. It is not baked but prepared by setting it in the fridge. The crust consists of crushed biscuits, like a trifle, and it contained blueberries, blackberries, grenadilla and cherries.
