Mixed Berry Tart

1 pound of mixed berries(mixture of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries) fresh or frozen
1/4 cup white sugar
zest of 1 lemon
a few dollops of peach liqueur
Frozen Biscuits(this recipe makes approx 12 tarts, you could use canned, just not the layered kind)
flour and sugar for dusting
Whipped Cream
1 cup of heavy whipping cream
1 12 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 TBs sugar

Combine berries, sugar and lemon zest and a couple dollops of peach liqueur in a large bowl and let berries macerate for about 30 minutes while the biscuits thaw.

Once the biscuits are softened, dust your work surface with flour and sugar and roll each biscuit into about a 7" circle.  Crimp up the edges of the biscuit with your fingers.  Place several spoons of berry mixture into the center of each biscuit and sprinkle with a little extra sugar.

Combine the whipping cream, sugar and vanilla in a mixer bowl.  Start beating on low and slowly increase speed.  Continue beating until the mixture reaches soft peaks.  Top each tart right before serving.
This is an easy dessert that makes up quickly and looks great but it also tastes heavenly!
