Puff Pastry Tart has always been the go-to dessert for me and my family! This recipe is incredibly easy to make and at the same time delicious. Berries are high in antioxidants and vitamins. They also play an important role in mental health. I already explained about the benefits of berries in my earlier posts. So try this cream cheese tart and share your comments!

Puff Pastry Tart

Just three things are needed to make this simple yet elegant dessert. Furthermore, I would like to give some of my suggestions for making cream cheese tart. Firstly, you need buttery crisp puff pastry. It is readily available in the supermarkets. If you want to use the frozen puff, then defrost it in the refrigerator overnight. Secondly, the creamy filling made with cream cheese and whipping cream. You can also use mascarpone cheese instead of cream cheese. Finally, the finishing touch is rows of fresh fruits. For the fruit, while I used strawberries and blackberries, you can use whatever fruits as you like.

Notes: If you like, go ahead and make the puff pastry squares several hours before you going to serve them. You can also make the cream cheese filling and store it in the refrigerator separately. But it is best to top the puff with the cream and fruit shortly before serving, otherwise, the cream will soften the puff.
