Blackberry Mini Tarts

Wow we are full swing into holiday events and I’m loving it! I made these mini blackberry tarts two days in a row…Once for a fun holiday “mommy coffee” and my daughter’s preschool Christmas program last night! They are super easy, fast and a HUGE great big hit! Plus they look fancy smancy. My sweet grandma Bonnie taught me how to make these and today I am passing them on to you…

I package Pillsbury Pie Crust
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 bar of room temp cream cheese
2 Tbsp room temp butter
1 10 oz can of blackberry preserves
You will also need:
star shaped cookie cutter
mini muffin pan (greased)


1. Get out your pie crust and roll it out. 2. Cut out your star shapes and place in the greased mini muffin pan. 3. Fill the entire muffin pan. 4. Bake for 9 min on 350 degrees. Let cool. 5. Mix your cream cheese, vanilla, butter, and powdered sugar. 6. Spoon on each with a little bit of preserves and top each with a little of the cream cheese mixture. I was fancy here and used a pastry tip..(You don’t have to, but people think your a french pastry chef if you do).

These go prefect on my fav thrift store plate stand. It’s my prized possession cause I used it so often 🙂

I’m taking in every second of this busy holiday and enjoying my family! I wish you the same 🙂 Enjoy the tarts!

Love it?
