So, after a weekend of holiday party food madness I was in the mood for a more healthful snack/dessert for my family. The only thing I could find that was really in season were these blackberries and kiwis which are both delish and great for you!

Simple Fruit Tart (mine fit in an 11×13 pan)
Adapted from Pinch of Yum and America’s Test Kitchen
Prep time:  1 hour
Cook time:  20 mins
Total time:  1 hour 20 mins

Serves: 16

 Ingredients
  • 3/4 cups raw sugar (or other sweetener)
  • 1 1/4 cups flour (I used an almond meal coconut flour blend and decreased the butter)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • assorted fresh fruit cut into slices
 Instructions
  1. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl until fluffy, 3-5 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt) and mix until just combined, about 30 seconds. Chill the dough.
  2. Preheat oven to 350. Roll chilled dough into one big cookie and place on a round baking stone. Sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoons sugar. Bake for 17-20 minutes. Let cool; chill in fridge.
  3. Mix frosting ingredients together and spread on chilled cookie. Chill again to set and thicken the frosting.
  4. Top with fresh fruit. Cut into slices and serve!
If you dont want the dough slightly underbaked, bake the dough for an additional 5-10 minutes.
