fruit tart with lemon curd and whipped cream

Classic Fruit Tart


One of my all-time favorite summer-time desserts is the classic fruit tart! I cannot say enough about this beautiful tart! It’s stunning and eye-catching! Nothing beats all of that goodness combined with loads of fresh berries and summer fruit. Make this easy fruit tart for your next get-together and it will be the first dessert to be devoured!

I make my tart with a crumbly shortbread crust that simply melts in your mouth. The recipe is super easy and really, you can’t mess it up! Just place the ingredients into a food processor and let it do all the hard work for you. This tart has not one but TWO different fillings! First, I make a sweet and tart home-made lemon curd. It’s the perfect filling for any fruit tart and it goes so well with berries. The second filling is a fluffy and cream cheesecake frosting. It makes this tart a bit lighter and tastes absolutely incredible! Once you taste it, you’ll know what I mean!

I like to garnish my classic fruit tart with whatever fruit and berries I have on hand. For this video recipe, I used blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and apricots. Feel free to use any type of fruit that you have.
