These simple blackberry tartlets make the perfect and elegant addition to any shower, brunch or special occasion like a fun summer party or such.

Blackberry tartlets are also as easy as can be to make. You simply use a pre-made phyllo shell, a bit of homemade blackberry curd, a dollop of whipped topping, and then keep them chilled until you are ready to serve.

You can easily substitute the blackberry for another berry such as raspberry, strawberry, or maybe even a blueberry. An assorted tray of a few of those would be pretty sweet, too I think.
