Fresh Fruit Tart! Yummmmm!

Today is a lovely Sunday, and after church I had decided to just relax since I had been very busy this week and today was my day off from my new exercise routine. Yeah exercise, not my favorite thing but trying to get back at it after a few years of being lazy and as a consequence the gaining of almost 30 pounds and that isnt funny. But that's another story.

 Soooo yes I was relax seeing a movie on my laptop when just got bored and sad HHHHaaa let me make something sweet for the kids.  Went straight to my recipe book and looked thru it and say its been like 3 years I havent made a fruit tart! It seemed like a great idea knowing that its made with fresh fruit and sound sooo refreshing and the best part it wouldn't hurt my diet since it was made with fresh fruit, Right!!!!

 Lets make it!

1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter

1 (8onz) package cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used vanilla bean paste)

Fresh Fruit (any you like, may be strawberries. kiwis, blueberries, raspberries, etc.

Whipped cream (optional) for garnish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

For Crust: in food processor or your kitchen aid machine combine confectioners sugar, butter and flour til it forms a ball.

 With fingers press dough into the 12 inch tart pan with removable bottom. Push the dough into indentations and sides.

 Bake for about 10-12 min. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

In another bowl beat together cream cheese, granulated sugar and vanilla until creamy. Once the crust is completely cool just add the filling to it and garnish with the fresh fruits.

Oh Gosh, this really is a very fast, simple and awesome dessert to make at anytime.

There goes my diet :0 !! Hope you enjoy it as much as I did and it was delissssssh!!
