How to Make Mini Fruit Tarts (Easy Recipe)

Fruit tarts…yum. A few months ago, I decided to figure out how to make these little beauties at home. They look amazing and they taste so good. However, I don’t have a ton of time or patience to make everything from scratch. So, I found a super easy way to make the crust and then make a from-scratch filling which is so yummy. Now it’s one of our family favorites and they are seriously SO easy to make.

Easy Mini Fruit Tarts

  • 1 Package Pillsbury Sugar Cookies (24 pack) Get the ones shown here. They are already cute and perfect size.
  • 1 (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powder sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • Choose your toppings: blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, mandarin oranges, strawberries or kiwi.


  1. Spray 24 count mini muffin pan and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Drop one pre-cut sugar cookie in each muffin spot. SO easy!
  3. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Be sure to rotate halfway through.
  4. Remove from oven and immediately press centers of cookies down. I use the closed side of a small measuring cup. Let cool for a few minutes and then remove from pan and cool completely.
  5. In a bowl combine cream cheese, whipping cream, powder sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whip with electric mixer until smooth.
  6. Put mixture in a pipe or baggie and cut off end. Then squeeze into each cookie shell.
  7. Top with fruit and then each immediately or chill.
