Fresh Fruit Tart Fresh Fruit Tart

Servings: 8 servings
Cook Time: 14 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened and sliced

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh strawberries, kiwi slices, blueberries, raspberries

1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Whipped cream, for garnish





Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the crust: In a food processor, combine the confectioners’ sugar, flour, and butter, and process until the mixture forms a ball. With your fingers, press the dough into a 12-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, taking care to push the crust into the indentations in the sides. Pat until the crust is even. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until very lightly browned. Set aside to cool.

For the filling and topping: Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Spread over the cooled crust. Cut the strawberries into 1/4-inch slices and arrange around the edge of the crust. For the next circle, use kiwi slices. Add another circle of strawberries, filling in any spaces with blueberries. Cluster the raspberries in the center of the tart.

For the glaze: Combine the limeade, cornstarch, lime juice, and sugar in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until clear and thick, about 2 minutes. Let cool. With a pastry brush, glaze the entire tart. You will not use all of the glaze.

Keep the tart in the refrigerator. Remove about 15 minutes before serving. Slice into 8 wedges and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

This recipe is FANTASTIC! A friend served this at a birthday party and everyone was so impressed! The crust is out of this world and the filling is divine. I highly recommend this tart!

I haven't made the tart yet but I think it looks wonderful! can it be made by hand? I want to try it :D Do I have to soften the butter if it's made by hand?

This is an AWESOME treat! I have made mini ones following the same basic recipe. Instead of using the tart pan, I simply roll the dough into little balls and flatten slightly. Bake in the oven until lihghtly browned. Cool. Place "cookie" in a decorative cup cake paper them top with filling, fruit, and limeade glaze. This is easier so I don't have to worry about cutting the tart.

If you don't have a 12 inch tart pan could you use a 9 inch or a pizza pan or a pie pan? Could you please let me know soon as possible. Thank You. Your Freind Linda Spalding
