About This Recipe

This super simple no bake recipe for Easiest Fruit Tartlets is so simple that even small kids can make it (as long as you help with the electric mixer part). Lemon curd and cream cheese are spread onto purchased unfrosted thick sugar cookies, then topped with fresh fruit and a bit of melted jelly for shine. (Pepperidge Farm makes a fabulous Soft Baked Strawberry Cheesecake Cookie that would be incredible in this recipe, or use my recipe for Soft and Chewy Sugar Cookies.)

You can certainly make your own sugar cookies if you’d like, but make sure the recipe is for thick cookies, not the thin type. That way some of the filling can soften the cookies so every bite melts together in a very delicious way. And if you make them yourself, the cookies have to be completely cooled before you make these tartlets so the filling doesn’t melt.

And you can use fruits other than strawberries; try raspberries, or sliced peaches if they are in season, or blueberries, or even a combination. Remember that every recipe you make should be made to taste. Your taste.

This easy recipe is a great choice for Easter, or for spring celebrations such as Mother’s Day, or just because it’s a Friday. Make it when the fruits look really good in the supermarket. With recipes this simple, it’s crucial that all of the ingredients are really top quality.

Tips for the best Easiest Fruit Tartlets:

  • Make sure that the cream cheese is really softened before you combine it with the lemon curd. If the cream cheese is fridge-hard, it will never soften and be creamy.
  • Don’t make this recipe far ahead of time, or the cookies will absorb too much moisture from the lemon curd mixture and will fall apart when you pick them up. They should be eaten within two hours of making them.

Why this recipe works:

  • The combination of soft cookie, creamy lemon mixture that tastes just like cheesecake, and sweet and tart fruits is irresistible.
  • You can sprinkle the finished cookies with some chopped fresh mint for another layer of flavor.
