Independence Day Tartlets

This recipe came from my aunt Susie and was titled Fruit Pizza. I thought it would be fun to make it into individual tartlets and do a red white and blue theme. Really, you can use any kind of fruit (pineapple, kiwi, blackberries, mandarin oranges, strawberries, etc.).

Independence Day Tartlets


1/2 c sugar
1 pkg cream cheese at room temperature
1 batch of sugar cookie dough (store bought is fine)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease tartlet pans well. Divide dough into 24 balls (depending on the size of your pans. Mine are 2 1/2 inches wide on top and 1 1/2 inches at the base). Squish dough into mini pans.

Bake for approx. 10 minutes or until cookie dough is lightly golden at edges. Allow to cool and then remove cookie shells from pans.

Puree cream cheese and sugar. Put in piping bag. Pipe into cooled shells. Add fruit. Chill.

Baby E ended up being born at the same hospital as my little guy, and not even a whole day apart! Here are a few snapshots from his birthday party...
