4th of July Fruit Tart

In honor of the 4th of July here's a very tasty and very red, white, and blue dessert recipe!

1 c. room temperature butter
1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 c. flour
a pinch of salt

1/3 c. heavy cream
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 package room temperature cream cheese


1. Set the oven to 350 degrees
2.  To make the crust, cream the butter and the sugar together until they are completely combined
3.  Add the flour and salt to the butter mixture until a dough is formed
4.  Press the dough into the bottom and sides of a tart pan and bake for 20 minutes
5.  While the crust is baking, make the filling by combining the heavy cream and powdered sugar and whipping up to a thick consistency (but not all the way to stiff peaks)
6.  In a separate bowl, whip the cream cheese until it is soft and smooth
7.  Whip the heavy cream combination and cream cheese together until they are combined
8.  Before filling the tart shell, be sure it has cooled to room temperature
9. Once the shell is room temperature, fill the tart and decorate the top with strawberries and blueberries
10.  Chill in the refrigerator for a couple hours

That's it!
I hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of July!
