  7. Place each portion into a glass tart bowl.
  8. Press the mixture onto the bottom and sides to form an even layer.
  9. Microwave on High for 2 mins until heated through and set. Allow the tarts to cool.
  10. For fruit filling:

  12. Microwave on Medium for 2 mins. Stir once. Microwave on High for 1 min. Cool.
  13. Make a puree of peach and pineapple.
