Razzy Jazzy Berry Tarts

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.
  • Makes
    3 dozen


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 6 ounces 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


  • Preheat oven to 325°. In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese until smooth. In another bowl, whisk flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Drop by scant tablespoonfuls into 36 greased miniature muffin cups. With floured hands, press dough onto bottoms and up sides of cups; flute edges if desired.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll remaining dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut dough 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 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 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.

    These tarts were delicious. The dough is the easiest dough I have ever worked with. I made the dough, then my grandchildren made the tart shells, even the 4 yr old could do it. I will be making these again.

    I made these with my 2 grandchildren, ages 7 and 4. This is the easiest dough I have ever worked with. Even the 4 yr. old was able to make his own pan of tart shells. The tarts were also very delicious. We made them exactly as the recipe stated.

    These are wonderful! I have made these for several parties and never had one left. any type of pie filling works great. The pie crust is good for a whole pie also.

    These are wonderful! I have made them for several parties and never had one left. After the first time, I have made them with all kinds of pie fillings.
