(berry)cream cheese tart

i wanted to conquer my fear of making tarts & pies
i thought i should start with the easiest one
the recipe from joyofbaking.com seems the right choice

i opted out the cran-raspberry sauce
both berries are unavailable
never bought them before
never set my eyes on them

recipe below is a twisted version
according to available materials

  • 150gm crushed digestive biscuit
  • 2tbs sugar
  • 80gm butter - melted


  • 8oz cream cheese
  • 1/4cup sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1cup heavy whipping cream


  1. crust: mix all crust ingredients and pressed onto the bottom and sides of a greased removable-bottom tart pan (8 or 9inch).
  2. cover with plastic and keep in freezer while you prepare for filling.
  3. filling: beat cream cheese with hand mixer until smooth.
  4. add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. add vanilla.
  5. in another bowl, beat whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  6. combine whipping cream into cream cheese mixture.
  7. pour the filling over the chilled crust.
  8. cover and refrigerate overnight <-- i just cover with larger cake pan.
  9. dollop a spoon of berry sauce (in my case-i use blueberry filling) before serving
  10. serve it chill-immediately out from the fridge!


my fear is not conquered yet. baking the tart shell is my actual fear :p

mission diverted! but am glad this yummy-creamy-dreamy tart is a HIT!
