Razzy Jazzy Berry Tarts Recipe

Razzy Jazzy Berry Tarts Recipe

I serve these fresh-fruit tarts every July at my family's Independence Day celebration. Sometimes I substitute blackberries with blackberry jam, and I often add slivered almonds to the fillings. —Nicole Chatron, Tulsa, Oklahoma
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour Bake: 20 min. YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2/3 cup blueberry preserves
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 2/3 cup seedless raspberry jam

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. Combine the flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Drop by scant tablespoonfuls into 36 greased miniature muffin cups. With well-floured hands, press dough onto bottoms and up sides of cups; flute edges if desired.
  • 2. Bake tarts at 325° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 3. On a lightly floured surface, roll remaining dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut stars with a floured 1-1/2-in. star-shaped cookie cutter; cut 1/4-in. stripes with a small knife. Place stars and stripes on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 325° for 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 4. In a small bowl, combine blueberries and blueberry preserves; spoon into half of the tarts. In another bowl, combine raspberries and raspberry jam; spoon into remaining tarts. Top with cut-outs. Yield: 3 dozen.
