Made the tarts and the second version of pin wheels for my husbands birthday BBQ. The tarts were quite floppy and messy. The pin wheel version was a hit and was asked for recipes! Over all, love it!

Made this for Easter lunch. Did it exactly as the recipe says, utterly delicious. Served with single cream. May try soaking the fruit in brandy rather than juice if I do this again. It would also work as a lighter desser at Christmas which I may well do as we're not great fans of Christmas pudding.
