Show and Tell Friday...

Friday, February 20, 2009

Today I am sharing a fast, delicious recipe that looks fabulous!




Fruit Tart

2 cups sugar
2 packages cream cheese, softened
1 container Cool Whip, softened
2 tubes crescent rolls
Assorted fruit

Unroll crescent rolls. Lay flat on a baking pan, pressing seams together.

Bake at 350 until lightly browned.

Using a hand mixer, beat together the softened cream cheese and sugar. Once combined, add the Cool Whip. Spread over top of cooled crescent rolls.

Add your fruit. I used canned peaches (completely drained), fresh strawberries, blueberries and banana. You can use whatever assortment you like!


Here are two different ones I made recently. One with bananas and the other without!


The first time I served this to my father he thought it came from a bakery! I hope you try this easy recipe, your family will love it!

  7. This recipe sounds delicious! I would like to try it. I notice you live in Lancaster, PA., I used to work for a direct sales company and often traveled from Mechanicsburg, PA to Lancaster for evening shows. What a small world! Lancaster is still one of my favorite places to visit., and I'm all the way in GA now. ;) ~CC Catherine

  9. I am trying to find the name of the church where my sister and her husband pastor. I know the building is a landmark so it has the original name, I think.
    They pastored in Allentown for quite a few years.
    I know they are independent. Not charismatic, not tongues, but I am not quite sure. It's a long way from Louisiana to Pennsylvania!
    Do you live close by?

  26. Looks and sounds absolutely yummy Lois - but I am not sure what crescent rolls or Cool whip is!!

    I am wondering is it the same as our croissants? I doubt that Cool Whip is the same as what we call Miracle Whip (which is like a mayonnaise spread for sandwiches and salads!) Regardless - I would help myself to seconds of your fruit tart in a split second!

    Have a great weekend Lois!

  27. Fiona, DO NOT USE MIRACLE WHIP. It is definitely not the same as Cool Whip!!! You can leave the cool whip out, it will taste just as good.

  41. I'm back with a question, Lois. I just got word this evening that my kids and families ARE coming Sunday and your recipe here would be great!

    My question: Is that aluminum foil lining your baking pan? and is that how you transfer it to the serving plate? Just wondering...

    Thanks!

  44. Linda, I baked it on an aluminum lined pan and then just picked it up, carefully and transferred it to my glass serving tray. It's not that fragile and if it were to break, no one would know, just cover it with the cream cheese spread!!! Enjoy it!!
