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.

Triangle Hat Cookies

We know a very sweet Jewish grandma who loved to serve up Hamantashen to her grandchildren for Purim, except, here's the thing...the kids liked to call 'em "Triangle Hat Cookies," 'cause that's what they look like! Whatever you call 'em, make sure you bake up a batch of these filled cookie treats!
