Fresh Fruit Tart

Fruit tart makes a perfect dessert for casual or formal event.
It takes less than an hour (with prep time) to put  together this colorful and elegant treat.
I made this simple and classy dessert on the occasion of my friends birthday.


1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
6 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup sugar
a pinch of salt
8 oz cream cheese ( I used 1/3 less fat Neufchatel), at room temperature
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
2 tbsp sour cream
Cut up fruits -kiwis, strawberry, madarin oranges, blueberries

How it's made:

Grease a 9"pie pan. Pre-heat oven to 350 deg F.
Melt chocolate chips and set aside.
Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, salt and sugar. Once well mixed, transfer mixture to pie pan and press into the bottom and sides of the pan. Bake at 350 deg F for about 15 minutes or until edges start to brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
In the meantime, in a mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, sour cream and melted chocolate. Pour into cooled crust. Decorate with fruits and refrigerate for 2-3 hours before serving.
