Today I am sharing what has become an annual tradition of trying out a new tasty raspberry dessert.  This year the kids and I settled on Quick and Easy Raspberry Tart.

(We did half with egg wash and half without. The family was split 1/2 and 1/2 🙂 the egg wash makes the pastry more golden brown.  It also makes it a slightly denser pastry.  It also kept the pastry crisper.)

(Be sure to watch the puffing action!)
