Celebrate the sweetness of spring with this stunning tart, bursting with the flavor of fresh, seasonal fruit.

With only five ingredients, including your favorite fruits such as red raspberries, sliced mango and kiwifruit, this recipe is a breeze to make.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Bar Dough
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups fruit (raspberries, sliced mango, kiwifruit and/or bananas)

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Grease bottom and side of 9-inch fluted tart pan with removable bottom.*

PLACE whole bar of dough in prepared pan. Allow to soften for 5 to 10 minutes. Using fingertips, pat dough gently to cover bottom and side of tart pan.

BAKE for 22 to 25 minutes or until lightly golden and wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.

ARRANGE fruit as desired on top of cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove rim of pan; slice into wedges.

*If tart pan is not available, press cookie dough onto greased pizza pan or baking sheet to measure an 8-inch circle. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until lightly golden.

Made this for a family get-together and it was a hit. I made it with mango, strawberries, kiwi and added a few blueberries as well. Will be making this dessert again soon.

Fresh and Refreshing

I have made this dessert several times, and it always disappears quickly, whether I serve it at home or make it for a special occasion or meeting. Other desserts may be half-gone, but this one is always eaten completely! Sometimes I use strawberry or pineapple soft cream cheese for convenience and added taste. It is best to not let this dessert sit 'for hours' after assembling, because the cookie crust softens. Best when served as soon as possble; it's at its freshest peak and flavor!
