Most people have certain traditions that they do on certain holidays and I am going to share one of mine. Every 4th of July, I make Mini Fruit Tarts and I love them because I am huge fan of fruits and sweets! Its the perfect combination of the two!
- sugar cookie dough
- 8 0z. cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 c. powdered sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2- 3 c. fresh fruit** ( you can choose your favorite fruits to top it with. I normally do strawberries, blueberries and kiwi)
2.)In a medium bowl beat room temperature cream cheese til smooth and creamy. Slowly add sifted powdered sugar until sweetened to taste. Add vanilla to cheese mixture. Refrigerate until ready to use.
3.)Chop fruit into bite size pieces, or drain completely from can. Set aside. Spread cream cheese filling onto cooled cookie crust. Top pizza or tart with fruit. It can be very composed or free form. Just make it look good. Serve at room temp. Refrigerate any leftovers.
