Mini Fruit Tarts

This recipe has two HUGE shortcuts...but not on flavor! I love homemade tart (not store bought, eww...) but I don't love slaving away in the kitchen to make it. One day I put this together and it was so good that I've dubbed it my mini tartlet recipe!

These taste best when eaten the day they are made, otherwise the cookie gets really soft. Bake the cookies so that they are more crispy than soft.

Makes 24 tarts.

-1 package break and bake sugar cookies (24 pieces)
-1/2 package vanilla pudding
-1 cup milk
-Optional: 1 teaspoon lemon or orange zest
-5 kiwis, peeled and cut into rounds (5 slices per kiwi)
-2 cups strawberries (stems removed and cut into slices)
-optional: chocolate chips for melting (I used semi-sweet and white chocolate)

-Arrange cookies on baking sheet and bake to package instructions. (Congratulations, you've just made the crust of your tarts)
-Mix pudding mix and milk according to package instructions. Stir in optional lemon or orange zest and place in refrigerator to set. (That's your custard!)
-Once cookies have cooled, flip them upside down. This gives a slight elevation to the cookie and allows for more surface space.
-Spread 1 tablespoon of pudding onto each cookie. Place one slice of kiwi and one sliver of strawberry on each cookie.
-Optional: Melt chocolate and drizzle over tarts.
-Serve and indulge!
