Easy Fruit Tarts

Store purchased mini-tart shells or homemade mini-tart shells:  Here is an easy recipe http://www.joyofjello.com/?p=640

1 (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened (about 20-25 seconds per side in microwave)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup water

1 (3oz.) lemon jello

1 cup ice

Fruit of choice

Beat softened cream cheese and sugar until smooth and creamy.  Spoon or pipe cream into tart shells.  Place fruit on top of cream.  In large glass bowl, heat 3/4 cup water in microwave until boiling- about 1 1/2-2 minutes.  Remove from microwave and slowly pour in jello powder.  Stir until blended and return to microwave for 1 minute.  Remove from microwave and stir well until jello is completely dissolved.  Add 1 cup ice and stir until ice is completely dissolved.  Spoon gelatin over tarts.  (If your cream and fruit are mounded up in tart- as shown in picture- rather than level, the glaze will not adhere to the fruit very well.  That’s ok, it will run down in crevices and on cream and it will look pretty and still have a punch of flavor from the glaze.

Beautiful fruit tart
