Sour Cream Fruit Tart

This sour cream tart makes a beautiful presentation for Memorial Day or the 4th of July, but can be enjoyed year ’round as well. If you’re on dessert duty, try this little number that doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, is quick to make and is oh so good!

 

Crust:
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs (or 8 whole graham crackers, finely ground)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
 
Filling:
6 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
2 t fresh lemon juice
1/2 t vanilla extract
Fruit of your choice:  strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and kiwi all work well.
 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar and melted butter. Press mix firmly onto bottom and sides of 9″ tart pan or pie plate. Bake 8 minutes. Cool.

Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in sour cream, lemon juice and vanilla. Spread in cooled crust.

 

Arrange fruit on top and chill 4 hours if possible. Serve and enjoy!

**To create star design, I used a knife to draw a star in the filling,

and then used blueberries to outline the star.

{I found that to make a good star, it was best to follow the line of each side, leaving out the middle, instead of outlining each tip. My first version of a star looked really wacky and I had to take them off and start over!}

After outlining, I filled in the star with more blueberries and cut up strawberries.

 Enjoy!
