fruit tart Have you set your 2016 New Year’s resolutions yet? If healthy eating is at the top of your list, you may want to look away now. Although this fruit tart doesn’t fall into that “healthy” category, it is delicious and we all deserve a treat every now and then ... right? This tart is filled with a delicious no-bake cheesecake and topped with fruit. It makes an excellent party dessert, if you’re willing to share. {wink} Ingredients: • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, slightly melted • 3 tablespoons granulated white sugar • 1/4 teaspoon salt • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour • 1 cup 35% heavy cream • 1 (8 ounce) cream cheese package, softened • 2/3 cup granulated white sugar • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract • 2 cups sliced fruit Directions: 1.

Tart Shell - Mix flour, butter, 3 tablespoons sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Stir well to mix. Put dough into a tart shell (greased with non-stick cooking spray) and use your hands to spread the dough evenly on the bottom of the pan and slightly up each side. Place the tart shell in the fridge for 30 minutes. Remove from fridge, prick several times with a fork, and then bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes until edges are slightly browned. Set aside and let cool completely before filling.


No-Bake Cheesecake Filling - Beat the 35% heavy cream with 2/3 cup sugar and vanilla until peaks form. Add cream cheese to whipped cream and beat until smooth. Spoon evenly over cooled tart shell.


Top with fresh sliced fruit and serve immediately. Store leftovers in fridge. 34 |
