#244_Very Berry Brownie Fruit Tart

Sometimes called Fruit Pizza, this pie is to die for....
it's a real scrumptious dessert.

Serve a piece of this to each your guests and watch them
lick their forks, lick their fingers, lick their plates, smack their lips
or look at you crossed eyed
insinuating they want another piece.
Yes, it's that delicious....and guests are allowed to break some of
Emily Post's etiquette rules in this yummie situation.

This dessert is not only scrumptious, but it is truly, really easy to make...just open a box of brownie mix, follow the directions and you have a brownie base.

For this dessert I used a box of triple chunks brownie mix, but you can use any fudge brownie variety. One box makes two 10-inch plates with higher rims or you can make the brownie in one rectangular baking pan.

The cream filling is made of 2 boxes (3.3 oz.) of instant white chocolate pudding mix using 2 cups of milk, mixed with one bar of cream cheese in a food processor.... like the cream filling I use for Crema de Fruta, entry #28, only the amount of milk is decreased to 2 cups.

Here's the recipe for the Cream Filling:
2 packages (3.5 oz each) instant pudding mix*
1 package cream cheese, softened
2 cups cold milk
In a bowl beat cream cheese and set aside. In another bowl, beat pudding and milk until thick, ( food processor works best for this part) Add the cream cheese and continue to beat until mixture is smooth. Consistency should be like mayonnaise. Spread over cooled brownie.

*Note: you can use either 1 box instant lemon pudding mix and 1 box of white chocolate pudding mix...excellent combination or just use one kind)

Strawberries are slightly coated with some glaze made of Danish Desserts then arranged on top of the pudding. Put the dessert in the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours before serving.

Aside from the strawberries, other fruits I used are
kiwifruit, raspberries, and blackberies.
This fruit combination was an inspiration from a cake
