Fruit Tart? Torte? Not really sure.

You will need:
2 cans Pillsbury cresent roll dough OR pie crust dough
1 8oz package of cream cheese
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla
Fruit of your choice.

I didn't have enough cresent roll dough, so I made a pie crust.  I used 2 cups of flour, 1 cup of vegetable shortening, and 1/2 a cup of water.
Use a fork to combine the flour and the shortening, then add water.
I just rolled out the dough onto a greased cookie sheet until the dough covered the entire cookie sheet.
Cook just the crust in the oven at 450 for 10 minutes.  Make sure to poke holes in the crust before cooking so that it doesn't bubble up.

While that is cooking, mix together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla.  Once the crust is out of the oven and cooled, spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the crust.

While I was making crust and icing, best friend was cutting up fruit!  Wal-mart had some amazingly delicious strawberries on sale, and I also found a ripe mango and some kiwi.

Put all the chopped fruit on top of the icing, and let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.



  1. I have heard this called fruit pizza before as well.

  2. my mom makes this all the time and it is so gooood. we have also used brownies underneath instead of the crust and have even drizzled chocolate syrup on it :)
