Ingredients

  • 1 package (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie pastry
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
  • Additional confectioners' sugar, optional

Nutritional Facts

1 individual tart equals 195 calories, 12 g fat (6 g saturated fat), 20 mg cholesterol, 135 mg sodium, 19 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, unroll pastry sheets. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut each with a floured 3-in. cookie cutter to make eight circles or other shapes. Transfer to ungreased baking sheets; prick holes in pastries with a fork.
  2. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and almond extract until blended. Spread over cooled pastries. Top with berries, pressing lightly to adhere. Sprinkle with almonds and, if desired, confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 tarts.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, spread in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Or, spread in a dry nonstick skillet and heat over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

Love this recipe. I've done this using sugar cookies and it never occurred to me to use pie pastry. Another idea you could do is use cookie cutters to cut the pie pastry into different shapes for a holiday or special occasion.
