Fresh Fruit Tart
This is a great time of year to make our fresh fruit tart because you can buy, grwo or pick lots of fresh fruits. There is no right or wrong way to make this when it comes to choosing fruits. Use what you like or what is fresh then be creative with the design. We have served our fresh fruit tart as a breakfast fruit course, for desert for an evening dinner or we have taken it to a pot-luck dinner engagement. It is versatile and colorful and always gets lots of comments. It is also super easy to make, especially if you cheat like we do and use a refrigerated pie crust. If you are a great baker then make your own crust, but if you don’t have the time to make the crust this is an easy alternative. We hope you enjoy this colorful treat that can be made year round, but is especially good when the fruit is fresh.
- 1 refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
- 2/3 cup vanilla yogurt
- 8 oz. sour cream
- 1 box (4-serving size) vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
- 1 cup strawberries, halved
- 2 kiwifruit, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
- 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Make pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell, using a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Bake 9-11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
2. In medium bowl, mix filling ingredients with wire whisk until well blended. Pour into cooled baked shell. Arrange strawberries, kiwifruit and blueberries on filling.
