Single serve, delicious, and sure to be the star of any party. These Sugar Cookie Fruit Tarts are the best!
I have been wanting to share these forever, but totally forgot about them! I made them during our 28-day challenge for my daughter’s birthday party, but because we were doing a health challenge I decided to wait to share them.
But aren’t they darling? So I originally made them for my daughter’s tea-party birthday party, but they were so fun I then served them at her baptism, and again at a party for my sister’s new baby. Everyone loved them.
And a big bonus, they are easy. If you are in a hurry, you can just buy a roll of sugar cookie dough, but if not, this recipe is eazy peazy!
And for the filling you have a couple options. When I made them for the 2 bigger events I went to my local Sam’s Club or Costco bakery and asked to buy the filling they use in their cakes. It is like $2/lb and is great for these. But they won’t always sell it to you. Anyway, I bought their whipped frosting/filling stuff, and mixed it with a package of vanilla pudding (after I made the pudding according to package directions) and some lemon juice, and wahla, fast, easy, and so tasty.
Or, try these recipes, because they really are eazy peazy, and taste great!
