Funfetti Fruit Tart

 
I made this fruit tart for a small family dinner party and I was so happy to serve it.  It's not just all the beautiful fruit that made me happy, but there is a creamy filling and a cookie crust too.   My family and I really enjoyed this quick dessert and I'm actually going to make it again today. Yes, it was that fun and delicious to eat. 

Ingredients:
1 Box of Funfetti Cake mix (substitute yellow or white cake mix with some sprinkles if you cannot find Funfetti style cake mix )
2 eggs
1/3 cup of canola oil
1 (8oz) brick of cream cheese thawed to room temperature
1 cup of cool whip topping
1/2 cup of sugar or splenda
fresh fruit


Directions:
Mix the cake mix together with eggs and canola oil.  This will make a thick and stiff batter. Spray a tart pan generously with some cooking spray (or butter) and form the tart base.  I coated my fingers with some oil to make the dough less sticky and pressed down then pushed the dough to the sides of the tart pan. 



Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes until the cook crust is baked.  Allow to cool to room temperature. Take a butter knife to loosen the edges of the cake from the pan.  Invert it onto a cake plate to finish assembling.






Mix your cream cheese and sugar/splenda together until it forms a creamy filling.  Then fold in your whip topping.
Take the cream filling and top the tart with it.







 Top with your favorite fruit and serve. Enjoy.

  9. I love, love, love desserts with fresh fruit on top. And why - unless you live in the absolute middle of nowhere and cannot for the live of you find funfetti - would you substitute? Funfetti is the best. The husband doesn't like cake (because he's weird) but I had him make me a funfetti cake for my birthday about three years ago. And then I had to eat the whole thing myself. ;-)
