Berrylicious Tart

This is so easy, looks stunning & tastes soooo good, it will be my new party trick when asked to bring dessert.

Ingredients
  • 375g wholemeal digestive biscuits 
  • 80g melted butter
  • 400g light cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 240g lemon & passion-fruit curd (or just lemon is fine), at room temperature
  • fresh berries to top
I used a punnet each of organic blackberries, raspberries & blueberries. Whatever tickles your fancy really.

Method
  1. Melt the butter on a low heat in a small saucepan.
  2. In a large bowl, crush the biscuits, then add the melted butter & mix well.
  3. Press the mixture into a buttered tart tin (with a removable base). Make sure you press it up the sides as well so you get an even coverage bottom & sides of the tin.
  4. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  5. Whisk the cream cheese and curd until smooth. This is where a strong man comes in handy if using a hand whisk ;)
  6. Dollop & spread it around the chilled tart base, smooth it out a tad.
  7. Pop into the fridge overnight (mine was in there for 2)
  8. Before serving, arrange all the gorgeous berries over the top and enjoy.
