Almond Cream Tarts

(1 Votes)
5 Min

Yes, you can make these fruit-topped cream tarts from Chicago that look and taste just like the ones from the bakery. (Look how easy they are!)

What You'll Need:
  • 4 ounces regular or light cream cheese, softened (1/2 of an 8-ounce package)
  • 2 cups whole or skim milk
  • 1 package (4-serving size) regular or sugar-free vanilla instant pudding and pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 package (6 single-serving size) graham cracker tart shells
  • Assorted sliced fresh fruit for garnish (like kiwifruit, berries, bananas, oranges, and peaches)
  • 3 tablespoons regular or low-sugar apricot or peach jam, melted
What To Do:
  1. Place the cream cheese, milk, pudding mix, and almond extract in a blender; cover and process at medium speed until smooth. Pour immediately into the tart shells, distributing the mixture evenly.

  2. Chill for 30 minutes, then top each tart with sliced fruit in decorative patterns. Brush the arranged fruit with the melted jam and serve, or keep topped tarts refrigerated until ready to use.

....and "grammer-check" for replies -- "their" writing, not "there" writing. We all make mistakes

How much almond extract is needed?

Even though it doesn't say about the almond extract I would start with a teaspoon full and if you think it needs more, add it .I truely believe the people that write the recipes should double check there writting before submitting it to the computer.
