Blueberry Kiwi Fruit Tart

Standard

I think my favorite thing about fruit tarts are their appearance. I could probably spend hours coming up with new ways to position the fruits to make a beautiful masterpiece. Not only does this dessert pull you in by the way it looks, but the taste is not too bad either. πŸ™‚ I used a sugar crust and filled the tart with a sweet vanilla cream cheese. You can use any fruit you prefer and use your own inner artistic ability to design the fruit.

Crust Ingredients:

1/3 Cup sugar

1/2 Cup unsalted butter, room temperature

1 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoon milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

Filling Ingredients:

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 Cup powdered sugar

2 Tablespoons vanilla extract

Kiwi sliced thin

Fresh Blueberries

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a tart pan with butter and set aside.

In a stand mixer, cream together sugar and butter for about 2 minutes. Add flour, salt, milk, and vanilla. Mix until dough forms. If dough is still crumbly, add a little of milk at a time until dough forms.

On a flour surface, form dough into ball. Roll ball out into a circle an inch larger than your tart pan. You want the thickness to be a 1/4 inch. Lay over tart pan and gently form crust. Trim around the edge with a knife.

Pierce bottom several times with a fork to prevent a bubble. Bake crust for 20-25 minutes until edges are golden.

Allow to cool completely before adding filling and fruit.

For filling, cream together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth.

Pour into crust and even out. Arrange fruit to your specifications. ENJOY!!

About kristinegough86

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
