Squares of pie crust with cream cheese and blackberry filling make for a yummy treat or brunch item!



Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prep a cookie sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray.


In a mixing bowl, cream together powdered sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract.


Unroll the pie crust on a floured surface. With a pizza cutter or knife, cut crust into 3-inch squares. If you have scraps, just roll out more squares using a rolling pin. I was able to make about 11 squares per pie crust.


Place a scant teaspoon of cream cheese in each square on the diagonal, followed by a teaspoon of the jam.


Fold sides in and pinch it together a little in the middle so they stay closed.


Place on the baking sheet and bake for 16-17 minutes until crust is lightly browned.


This recipe makes about 22 tarts in total. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store leftovers in a covered container in the fridge (they are also great served cold!)
