A Star-Spangled Fruit Tart for Independence Day

DSC_2975-002

I have a last-minute recipe to help you celebrate the Red, White and Blueberry,

a Star-Spangled Fruit Tart!

A fancy version of a fruit pizza, made in a tart pan for easy removal for your Independence Day celebration!

I used an 11-inch tart pan for this star-spangled fruit tart. If you don’t have a tart pan, you can use a rectangular cookie sheet and arrange your berries in a flag pattern rather than a star design if you prefer.

To make it quick and easy, I used a 16 oz. package of Pillsbury Ready to Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies, found in the refrigerator section at the grocery store.

Press the cookies together so they cover the bottom of your pan and then bake according to package directions and your oven, around 10 – 15 minutes until golden brown.

Allow cookie crust to cool, then spread with a mixture of softened cream cheese and sugar. I used 12 oz. (1 1/2 packages) of softened reduced fat cream cheese and 1/3 cup of sugar, but use the ratio of sugar to cream cheese according to your taste.

I scored a star shape in the cream cheese and outlined with blueberries. Fill in the star with a combination of berries, I used raspberries and strawberries.

Refrigerate until ready to serve. We prefer the flavors within 2 – 4 hours while the chocolate chip cookie crust is still firm.

Liberate your tart pan from its ring and Proudly Serve!

    I’ve made that fruit pizza, Mary, but only with sugar cookie dough and never in a tart pan. I LOVE the look that the tart pan creates and chocolate chip cookie dough is a winner. May you, your hubby and Chloe and Gracie have a yummy and happy 4th!!

    Yummy, Mary! I was thinking of having a flag cake tomorrow but I think we will have this instead for a cool dessert! Happy 4th! Linda

    I think the kids would love this! I also think I have a tart pan here at the lake, so I’m heading out to the grocery store and get everything needed for this. You rock out loud, Mary!
