Fruit Tart

Today I am making a fruit tart...I used this recipe from :

Prep Time: 15 min

Total Time: 40 min

Makes: 8 servings, one slice



1 refrigerated ready-to-use pie crust (1/2 of 15-oz. pkg.)

4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened

2 cups sliced plums (about 3 medium)

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 Tbsp. flour

1 tsp. cinnamon sugar (3/4 tsp. granulated sugar and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon)
1 cup thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping

PREHEAT oven to 450ºF. Place pie crust in greased 10-inch pie plate. Carefully spread cream cheese in 6-inch circle in center of crust; set aside.

TOSS plums with granulated sugar and flour; place over cream cheese. Gently fold edge of crust about 2 inches over plums, leaving center of plums uncovered. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar evenly over tart.

BAKE 25 min. or until crust is golden brown and fruit juices are bubbly. Cool slightly before lifting out of pie plate. Cut into slices; top with whipped topping.

I make it almost how they say...I have made this before with the cream cheese but my hubby prefers it without..which is taste great no matter what. I just use whatever fruit I have on it is blueberries, plum and peaches. I have made it with strawberries and blueberries and with peaches only before and they both come out fabulous! This recipe is super, super easy since you use a premade pie crust and just mix up the fruit with some sugar and flour...I also add a little cinnamon to the mix as well. Then you top it with the cinnamon and sugar. I love to make this recipe because of how quick and easy it truly is. I forgot to take pictures as I went but here is what it looks like while cooking:

This one has some steam on the camera is 450 degrees in there after all.

As you can see..I made two at once..why is so easy just put in a few more pieces of fruit. I used two plums, three peaches and a container of blueberries. I can't wait to have my first piece!! YUM!! I also don't bother with the cool whip or anything like it..I just love it like it is.


Try it for yourself and be happy!
