Saturday Yum

Im feeling so Martha Stewarty today. I hadn't made this fruit tart in years, since college to be exact. The first couple of times I made it, it was a train wreck. I was so proud of the way it turned out this morning that I felt like I had just given birth to another Ok, maybe a little dramatic. Had to post a pic and share the super easy recipe.

Fruit Tart

2 ready to bake pkgs. sugar cookies

1 block of cream cheese

1 cup apricot preserves

sugar to taste

strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, & mandarin oranges

simply spread out the dough and level on a pizza pan or shallow baking dish & follow baking instructions. allow to cool. mix cream cheese with 3/4 apricot preserves, and sugar to taste. spread all over cookie as if you were making a pizza. arrange fruit in a circular ring pattern around cookie. repetition is key!

for the glaze: bring remaining apricot preserves and a few tbs. of water to boil. use a brush to apply a thin layer of glaze over the fruit and any exposed cookie crust. refrigerate for four hours & Enjoy!

Mmmm... I made one of these in the shape of a flag a while back and it was de-LISH! Now I'm thinking that would be a great thing to make for 4th of July.

Not to mention the fact that I'm starving - it's 12:40PM and I've eaten four pretzels in the last eight hours. I'm HUNGRY!!!
