Peaches and Cream Tarts

Here is a great dessert for your sweetheart if they do not like decadent chocolate. (I cannot imagine why someone would not like chocolate but this is a good one and one of my husbands favorites). It utilizes my cream cheese sugar cookie dough for the crust which is located in my Holiday Cookies and Treats category of my blog. It simple and very fast to make. Other variations will follow below.

Peaches and Cream Tarts

Tart shells made from cream cheese sugar cookie dough
vanilla pudding
2 cups sliced peaches (fresh or frozen)
1/4 cup sugar
whipped cream
cinnamon sprinkles for the top

Make the cookie dough according the directions in my blog post about Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies Bake in 375 oven for about 12 minutes or until edges barely get browned. Cool on wire racks. Invert out of the tart pans when cooled off.

Meanwhile make pudding according to package directions (I get instant pudding which is fast setting)

Mix the sliced peaches with the sugar; set aside.

To build the tarts:
With an empty shell, fill 1/2 way with pudding. Put in refrigerator to set. About an hour.

Top with peaches, garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle cinnamon on top if desired.

Other Variations:
- use strawberries, garnish with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles or shavings
- use blueberries, garnish with finely grated lemon peel
- use raspberries, garnish with chocolate

I am right there with you sister, who in their right mind would not love chocolate. But let me just say that if you do need a wonderful substitution these are it. They look so darn yummy.

Here's another vote for chocolate ... but having a pretty good sweet tooth I am certainly open to other desserts (many others for that matter).
