On a quiet, Thursday afternoon i tweeted ...
'My dad just brought home some Kiwi Fruits. What should i do with them?'
& @eece a.k.a Lis Enos replied with ...
'tarts!' & emailed me her recipe for 'Cream Cheese & Strawberry Tart'.
Off to the shops i bought a 12 pack of Pampas pre-made frozen tarts. I already had kiwi, apricot jam, thickened cream & Philadelphia at home.
Here is the recipe except i had double the amount of cream cheese therefor doubled everything else & was left over with about one cup of filling which i just threw away.
First I baked the tarts according to the packet instructions, & let them cool. WHile they were cooling i made the filling:
~125g Philadelphia spread
~4 tablespoons caster sugar
~3 tablespoons cream (pouring or thickened)
~1 kiwi fruit, peeled & sliced (thick or thin up to you though i find thicker is better)
~Apricot Jam (to glaze)
1. Mix the philly & sugar on low speed.
2. Add the pouring cream & mix on medium speed until well mixed.
3. Spoon into cooled tart cases.
4. Place kiwi slice on top.
5. Heat up the jam (make sure it is heated properly, i didn't and it was clumpy & ugly boo)
6. Brush over fruit as a glaze
(not i glazed the whole tart haha friggin hell me + instructions = fail)
I want to try again (i still have kiwi fruits left) but with custard instead, only because i have a major sweet tooth!
