Peaches and Cream Tart

Yeah...another mini dessert!  I don't know whats wrong with me!  I am so obsessed with anything MINI!  They just look so cute AND I feel like I can eat more:)  I got this recipe from my friend Jodi forever ago and I just don't make it enough!  I love it!  The best part...no OVEN!  Yeah, you heard me!  Pop it in the freezer and BAM!  Yumminess!

Its a PEACHES and cream tart because of the peaches on top...so if you don't like peaches...do strawberries or blueberries...whatever you want!

Peaches and Cream Tart

Crust:
2 c. Macaroon Cookie crumbs (almost 1 pkg. cookies)
1/4 c. butter, melted

Combine crumbs and butter.  Put in spring form pan or mini cheesecake pan.  Freeze for 15 minutes.

Filling:
1 c. heavy cream
2 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
2/3 c. sugar
4 TBS orange juice concentrate
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract

Whip whipping cream till stiff, set aside.  Beat cream cheese, sugar, OJ, vanilla and almond.  Stir in whipping cream.  Spread over crust.  Refrigerate 2-4 hours or freeze 1 hour.   Peel and slice peaches (or strawberries, raspberries, blueberries...) and sprinkle with sugar.  Put fruit on top of filling before serving.

If you want you can make some homemade whipped cream (1 c. heavy cream, 1/2 c. sugar, 1 tsp. almond) and put on top before the fruit...so good:)

  2. Ok- so I think I'm missing something, how do you get them in the cute little shapes? It's probably a no brainer- but I can't figure it out!
