Mix and Match Mini Tarts

So I bet you are probably wondering why I keep posting fruit tart recipes. Well see, because the original recipe for fruit tart is so stinking good..I thought that it was worth while to play with it a little. I think I've found some wonderful variations.

The tart recipe is ultimately the same, but just a few extra perks!! woot woot!
Mix and Match Fruit Tarts
Items Needed:
  • Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough (Log Form)
  • Pillsburg Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (Log Form also)
  • Chocolate Tart Filling (recipe to follow)
  • Vanilla Tart Filling (recipe to follow)
  • Peanut butter cups
  • Caramel Sauce
  • Melting Chocolate
  • Fresh Fruit (including Strawberry, Kiwi, grapes, and raspberries)
  • Peach Fruit Preserves
  1. Take cookie doughs and press them into small tart pans (as shown above).
  2. Bake in a 350* oven for approximately 8-12 minutes (depending on the cookie dough)
  3. Let cool.
  4. Fill with chocolate or vanilla filling (recipe to follow)
  5. Top with fruit/carmel sauce and melting chocolate/peanut butter cups and melting chocolate. Or create your own special creation!
  6. If you are using fruit, melt the preserves in the microwave just until able to stir easily. (about 20-30 sec. intervals).
  7. Brush preserves onto the top of fruit for a shiny glaze!
  8. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed.

Chocolate and Vanilla Tart Filling

  • One small package chocolate or vanilla instant pudding (jello brand)
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 package of cream cheese (4 oz.)
  • 1 cup cool whip
  1. Whisk chocolate or vanilla pudding mix into the cold milk for two minutes.
  2. Let set for approximately two minutes.
  3. Beat in softened cream cheese.
  4. Fold in cool whip.

The recipe works to make both fillings.

Yummy! All of these precious little tarts.
Heres an idea. Set up a Fruit Tart DIY station. Make up a bunch of different tart shells. Set the fillings in pretty bowls, and have a few bowls of fruit, caramel, peanut butter cups, hot fudge, etc.
You'll be famous among your fruit tart friends.
