Fresh Fruit Tart Recipe

Fresh Fruit Tart,

Pudding, Fruit,
Gelatin, Chill

Here's an easy fresh fruit tart recipe. Just plop pudding, fruit and gelatin into tart shells and chill.

This eye-catching dessert or tea cake is attractive enough to use as the centerpiece of your table.

And the easy, "ready-made tart shell" version here is great for anyone who needs a break from cooking from scratch.

Easy Fruit Tarts

16 frozen tart shells (from your grocer), thawed and baked*
3 cups vanilla pudding
3 cups assorted fruit
2 cups strawberry or raspberry gelatin, slightly thickened but not set
Whipped cream, optional

    Think about adding a sprig of mint or pecan half to your fruit tart arrangement.

Spoon pudding into the bottom third of the tart shells.

Decoratively arrange the fruit on top, slicing as necessary.

Pour gelatin over the fruit in each shell and chill.

Top with whipped cream, if desired, before serving.

Makes 16 tarts.

*Try using mini tart shells, if you like. As long as they're not too small to hold fruit they'll work well for traditionally small tea-party fare.
