Easy Flag Fruit Tart

This simple recipe is a big hit at parties and can be decorated a number of ways with fresh fruit.

Here’s another oldie but goodie.

Using fresh fruit, packaged cookie dough and an easy cream cheese filling you can make a beautiful and tasty tart for everyone to enjoy.

For this one I arranged the fruit on a rectangular jelly roll pan in the shape of the US flag, but in the original recipe, that I learned from mom, was made on a round pizza pan. The original recipe also includes more fruit such as bananas, strawberries and peach slices which you would arrange in layers so that you would get a bit of everything when you cut the pie wedge.

For added taste and sparkle I used (this was on the original too) apricot preserves that I heated on the stove and added water to, making a nice glaze to spoon over the tart.

It’s really tasty and easy to make and just think of how creative you can get with your fruit choice and arrangement.
