Kiwi Berry Fruit Tart

I love a simple dessert, and I think that a sweet, fresh fruit tart is the perfect palette cleanser to a savory or light dessert! This recipe is more than simple, but you can most definitely add your own twist to it!
Kiwi Berry Fruit Tart

1 ½ C. All Purpose Flour
½ C. Confectioners Sugar
1 ½ Sticks of Butter
16oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 C. Sugar
1 Tbsp. Lemon Extract
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
Fresh Strawberries, 5 whole & the rest sliced
Fresh Kiwi, peeled, and sliced
Fresh Blackberries

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an electric mixer mix: confectioners sugar, flour, and butter until your mixture comes together. In a 10 1/2” non stick spring form pan press your dough evenly into the bottom and onto the sides. Bake for about 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let Cool.

Now combine your cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and lemon with you mixer until smooth. Evenly spread your filling into your cooled crust. Place a vignette of kiwi, whole strawberries with the flat end facing down and the pointed end facing upward, and blackberries, in the center of your tart. Now place some some of your strawberry slices vertically along the edges of your crust...inserting it into the cream cheese. Now layer your kiwi and strawberry slices alternately working your way from the edges towards the center.

With a pastry brush lightly brush your honey on top of your fruit. Place your tart in the fridge to set for about 20 minutes before serving. Serve chilled!
