White Chocolate Fruit Tart

Alhumdullilah (praise be to God) the iftar party I was freaking out about went without a hitch. Our apartment was cramped, but there was plenty of food to go around and not too many leftovers, but the best part was that everyone had a great time!

This fruit tart was actually one of the desserts that we served.  The kick here is that instead of a regular pastry cream, I filled this beauty with a white chocolate filling.  The number of compliments I received about this fruit tart are too many to count… So if you have anyone you want to impress I suggest you give this tart a try 😉

(By the way, I’ve included the recipe for both fillings. So go ahead, knock yourself out)

(By the way, I’ve submitted this recipe to The Halal Foodie for their Ramadan Event, a place where you can find an awesome array of iftar recipes!)

Fruit Tart

Yield: 12 Servings

Ingredients:

For Crust

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup butter, softened and sliced

For White Chocolate Filling

  • 10 oz. white chocolate, melted and cooled
  • ¼ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened

For Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Topping

  • Any fruits of choice

Directions:

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Combine all of the crust ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture start to come together and form a ball.  Remove the dough and press into an ungreased 11-inch tart pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned.  Cool completely.

For white chocolate filling, beat chocolate and cream.  Add cream cheese and beat until smooth.

For cream cheese filling, beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.

Spread desired filling over crust.  Arrange fruit and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.  Remove from refrigerator 15 minutes before serving.

Note:  A glaze can be applied on top of the fruit too. Combine 1 tablespoon of apple or apricot preserves with 1 tablespoon water and microwave to a boil.  Strain the seeds and brush the glaze over the tart.
