These Easy Blackberry Cream Cheese Tarts Require Only 5 Ingredients

Blackberry Cream Cheese Tarts

yield: 22 SERVINGS

prep time: 25 MINUTES

cook time: 16 MINUTES

total time: 41 MINUTES

Directions

1

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

2

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

3

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.

4

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

5

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

6

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

7

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!)

Impress your holiday party guests with these yummy and fancy looking blackberry cream cheese tarts!

Here’s a treat to consider making if you’re in full-on baking mode like me.

These delicious blackberry cream cheese pastries look like they came from a trendy bakery, but they are actually super simple to create at home using store-bought pie crusts and require just five ingredients! There’s not a special pan you need to use and they don’t require a pastry bag or any special equipment. This recipe is easy peasy!

These cream cheese tarts would be a perfect make-ahead Christmas morning snack or breakfast treat. Since they are made with pie dough, the kids would have fun helping you make them as a baking activity! Just fill, pinch the ends together, and bake.

After baking, the results taste similar to warm gooey little bite-sized pieces of blackberry pie with a sweet cream cheese filling wrapped in a buttery pie crust. The flavor and texture combo is so YUM, and these are fun to make!

Helpful hip tips when making these blackberry tarts:

  • To prep the tarts ahead of time, arrange all tarts on baking sheets and store them covered in the fridge. When ready to enjoy, just pop them in the oven and they’ll be freshly baked for your guests!
  • You can change up the filling to any preserve or spread you’d like! I bet fig spread or cranberry would taste just as amazing for this idea. Maybe even a bit of cherry pie filling would be yummy and look festive for the holidays. It’s up to you!
  • Store your pastries in a covered container in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. Truth be told, they taste outstanding even when cold, but they will likely disappear before that time frame! 😂

    Don’t like jam, what about Nutella?

    • Emily (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Monica! While we haven’t tried it, Nutella could work! The desired filling options are totally customizable. Enjoy!

  8. Deanna

    This looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Krista S

    I made something similar with squares of puff pastry recently. I used the cream cheese mixture and lemon pie filling. They were awesome.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh yum!

  10. CandyFoote

    Oh. My. Goodness! These look so good! Thanks for sharing! My little girls love to cook, and they will love this recipe!

    My Dollar Tree has imported (Egyptian) jams. I think they come in strawberry and orange. Just an idea to keep the cost down because sometimes jam can be expensive.

  12. Carrie O.

    Y-U-M! I’m 9 months pregnant right now and I would devour these ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Judy Trac

    Will try this but it doesn’t look appealing lol

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ha! You could maybe use a pastry bag to make the look fancier ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Maria

      Really? I think it looks scrumptious

  14. cher

  15. Tara

    These look amazing! Can’t wait to try. You always have the best recipes Lina! Egyptian jam sounds fab too… And for a buck?!

  16. Terri Mitchell

    I thought I would try these in the mini muffin tin with some cranberry relish instead of jam.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Cool! Yes i have made them using a small star shaped cookie cutter then press each one in a mini muffin pan. They turn out cute.

  17. Carol

    Can I use bought in shortbread tart shells

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      We havenโ€™t tried using those, but weโ€™re sure it would be yummy! I would follow the directions on the package for bake time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Nadine

    Do you think wonton wrappers could be substituted for the pie crust?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Ya that could be great! Let us know ๐Ÿ‘

  19. mchughes

    I might try puff pastry sheets or shells instead of the pie crusts.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Nice! Let us know how it turns out!
