Mixed Berry Tart




One of my all time favorite spring and summer desserts is a fruit tart. It is so simple to make and so delicious. I have tried a few recipes and this one is my favorite. 


Ingredients:

Crust:

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 sticks butter, softened

Filling:

1 package cream cheese, at room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 tsp lemon zest

1/2 lemon juiced

Mixed Berries for topping

Powdered sugar


Directions

Crust: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine powdered sugar, flour, and butter in the bowl of a food processor, processing until

mixture forms a ball (you can combine dough by hand, if desired). With your fingers, press 

dough into a 12-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, taking care to push crust into 

indentations in tart pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until very lightly 

browned. Let cool completely before filling.

Filling: In a large beat the cream cheese with the 

sugar, vanilla, lemon zest and lemon juice. Spoon the

mixture into the cooled pie shell and spread evenly. 

Top it with fresh berries. Sprinkle with powdered sugar is desired. 



Enjoy!
