Easy Raspberry Cream Tart

"Refrigerated sugar cookie dough,makes the crust for this cream cheese tart. Any fresh berry can be used, such as blackberries or blueberries, frozen berries water out too much, so be sure and use fresh. A 12" pizza pan can substitute for the tart pan. This gem comes from MIdwestLiving May 09."

    I came upon this recipe while looking for a use for the raspberries we got in our CSA box. DH requested a tart, and since I hadn't made one before, I thought I'd try out this recipe. I agree with JackieOhNo! that this was quite simple to make, but using the cookie dough is a challenge. I don't have a tart pan (yet!), so I used a pie plate, which I am sure made it easier, especially since I didn't try to remove it before serving. The dough makes it very difficult to remove from the pan, even for serving. Despite that, this tastes very good. We let it cool for the prescribed amount of time before trying and it was tasty, but I enjoyed it even more after it chilled overnight.

    This was quite simple, but I found the sugar cookie dough was a little problematic. I used the correct size tart pan and yet the dough puffed up and spilled over the sides, burning on my oven bottom. It also did not want to separate from the greased tart pan. However, the cream cheese filling was light and delicious, and complemented the raspberries perfectly. Perhaps next time, I will try the pizza pan method and see if that is more successful, although I do think a tart makes a lovely presentation. Thanks for posting this.
