We’ve mentioned our favorite fruit tart recipe a couple times in our Instagram stories and more recently in the January/February issue of Metro Parent Magazine. I’ve been making this tart since high school; I remember first seeing the recipe in a baking magazine I purchased at the grocery store. Back then, recipes were not so easily accessible online-yes, that’s how old both I and this recipe are! I’ve made this tart countless times for events like birthday parties and summer picnics, and it always gets raving reviews from whomever eats it. I will not make you search this whole post before I link the recipe, but read the rest of this blog if you want some good tips and tricks.

This favorite fruit tart recipe does not require any elaborate baking supplies, but I would highly recommend making your life easier and baking the crust in a 9 inch tart pan or spring form pan like the ones linked here. That way, you can remove the tart easily for cutting when you are finished. A baking brush will also help with the glaze which adds a great final touch. These items can easily be found at Target or on Amazon.
I think of this recipe in 3 stages. Each stage itself is not difficult at all. I think the most time consuming aspect about this recipe is cutting up the fruit topping. If I make this fruit tart ahead of time for an event, I often bake the crust and then add the white chocolate cream cheese filling on top (both stages only have 3 ingredients) and then store it away in the fridge to cool before adding the fruit topping the next day.
The recipe itself calls for mandarin oranges, strawberries, kiwi, and pineapple, but I’ve altered this in the past. Any berry is excellent on top-I’ve also used raspberries and blueberries which taste great with the other ingredients. I’ve also arranged the fruit on top to make it look festive for holiday gatherings like the cute Easter bunny seen below.
I hope you guys have a chance to try out this recipe. It really always is a hit. If you try it, let me know how you like it! Happy baking everyone.
