Rustic Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Tart




Valentine's Day is only a few days away and everywhere you look you are being inundated with chocolate desserts. Don't get me wrong, I like chocolate as much as the next person, but over the years my taste buds are definitely changing. These days I find myself gravitating towards fruit based desserts more often than not. There is just something about the combination of sweet and slightly sour or tart that seems to go oh so well together.

As far as desserts go, today's recipe comes together quickly and ranks high in the fruit satisfaction department. Store bought puff pastry sheets, a creamy no-bake cheesecake filling laced with a luscious lemon curd and topped with glorious sweet, red raspberries. Perfection! I made my own lemon curd following my recipe for Meyer Lemon Curd, but store bought is a perfectly fine substitution and will help to streamline the process.

The combination of flaky crust, creamy filling, and fresh fruit makes this dessert irresistible in my book. This is the perfect alternative for all of you non-chocolate lovers (like my husband) and I don't think that the chocolate connoisseurs would even mind a slice of this beautiful tart. 



Rustic Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Tart
~makes 1 tart~
(Print this Recipe)

Ingredients:
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed but still cold
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
2 Tbsp. heavy cream
1/3 cup lemon curd, homemade or store-bought
1 pint raspberries
1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam, warmed
Powdered sugar

Directions:
For the tart: Preheat oven to 425° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat. Unfold the thawed out puff pastry on a lightly flour dusted area and gently roll into a 10x11 inch rectangle. Carefully transfer to your baking sheet.

Brush edges with a little bit of water and fold over all 4 sides to create a lip. Using a fork, poke holes all over the center of your tart. Gently brush the entire tart with an egg wash and sprinkle about 2 tsp. of sugar over the center. Bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully with the back of a spoon press the center back down if it has puffed. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

For the filling: In a bowl combine softened cream cheese and sugar. Mix with a hand-mixer or by hand until smooth and the sugar is well incorporated. Add the heavy cream and mix for about 1 minute. Fold in the lemon curd. 

To assemble the tart: Carefully spread your lemon cheesecake mixture over the center of your cooled tart crust. Arrange berries decoratively over the curd and drizzle with the warmed jam. Dust the tart with powdered sugar.

Notes: This tart is best made and eaten on the same day. You can prepare the tart along with the cheesecake filling ahead of time. Refrigerate the filling and assemble the tart right before eating.

Other berries would be lovely as well. I bet blueberries, strawberries, blackberries or a combination would also be great!

  11. I have left over lemon meringue filling- could I use this do you think?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Kelly, thanks for stopping by! I think the leftover lemon meringue would work fine in place of the lemon curd. They are pretty similar in texture and taste, your filling might just be a little "stiffer" than if made with curd. Let me know how it turns out :-)

  12. This looks so delicious that I had to make it for dessert on Easter. Everyone loved it! Thanks so much for the recipe!

  17. I made your tart a few weeks ago, and I have had another request to make it again for father's day. Safe to say it was a success!! I do have a question for you, on my first try the cheesecake filling seemed to be a little loose and runny. Could it be because I mixed by hand instead of with a hand mixer?? If you have any suggestion on what I could do to "firm-up" the filling would be much appreciated :)

  21. Wow! This sounds delicious and easy. I had just one question, can you substitute the lemon curd for anything else? My husband's not a fan of lemon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Vicky, thanks for stopping by! While I love the contrast of the lemon curd with the sweet raspberries, I think it would be equally tasty if you made a vanilla pastry cream or you could go as simple as a jello vanilla pudding. Make that according to package directions and then use just like I did the lemon curd. Hope this helps :-)

  22. What kind of sugar is used in this recipe? I'm not sure if you're talking about powdered sugar or granulated sugar!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The sugar used in the cream cheese mixture is granulated sugar. Powdered sugar (which is listed as the last ingredient) is used to dust the tart at the end. Hope this helps!

    1. Hi Rachel, this serves about 6 people with a nice sized piece or you could get 8 smallish servings out of one tart as well. I guess it depends on how big of a sweet tooth everyone has :-)
