To make this tart I used my 11-inch tart and quiche pan with removable bottom, which makes a pretty fluted edge and for easy cutting and serving.

For a quick and easy shortcut, 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.

    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!

    This looks delicious, Mary, and I’d like to try it. But I have a question: How do you store leftovers of desserts made in your tart pan? A covered cake taker would be too big to fit in the frig.

    • April 3, 2018 at 6:08 am

      Hi Maureen, I usually don’t have leftovers :) but you can cut it into slices to refrigerate or place the tart pan in fridge without a cover.
