Servings 12 slices


  • 25cm flan dish (also referred to as a tart/quiche/pastry dish)
  • Food processor (or you could use a sandwich bag and rolling pin)
  • Hand or stand mixer
  • Whisk
  • Spatula
  • Small saucepan
  • Pastry brush


No-Bake Biscuit Crust

  • 300 g digestive biscuits US equivalent = Graham crackers
  • 160 g melted butter
  • 40 g light brown sugar/light muscovado sugar if using light muscovado sugar, sift to remove lumps

Whipped Cream Cheese Filling

  • 220 ml double cream cold
  • 170 g full fat cream cheese room temperature
  • 40 g icing sugar sifted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Fruit Glaze

  • 2 tbsp jam any jam is fine as long as it's not too dark in colour. Apricot is good, though I used strawberry jam on the pictured fruit tart
  • 2 tsp water

Fresh fruit *

  • 220 g fresh strawberries sliced
  • 20 g fresh blueberries whole
  • 2 kiwis sliced


No-Bake Biscuit Crust

  • Pulse the digestive biscuits/Graham crackers in a food processor. If you don't have a food processor, place the biscuits/crackers in a large ziplock/sandwich bag and crush them with the end of a rolling pin. Use either method until you have fine crumbs.
  • Melt the butter in the microwave in 20 second increments.
  • Whisk the biscuit crumbs and light brown sugar together in a medium bowl.
  • Add the butter to this mixture and stir with a spatula until well combined.
  • Pour this mixture into your 25cm flan dish and press down really firmly to pack the crumbs as tightly as possible. This will create a strong biscuit crust. I use a flexible rubber spatula to press down on the mixture to make sure it's tightly packed.
  • Place your flan dish in the fridge to chill while you make the whipped cream cheese filling.

Whipped Cream Cheese Filling

  • Pour the double cream, cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla extract into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or a medium bowl if using a hand whisk. Beat this mixture on a medium-high speed for around 1 minute until smooth and thickened.
  • Using a spatula or pallet knife, spread the filling on top of the chilled biscuit crust. Place back in the fridge to chill while you prepare the fruit glaze.

Fruit Glaze

  • Place the jam and water in a small saucepan. Place on the hob and heat on a medium heat for just a few minutes, stirring often with a spatula until you have a smooth watery glaze.
  • Remove from the heat and sieve the glaze into a small bowl to remove any seeds or lumps. Leave aside to cool slightly while you prepare your fresh fruit.

Fresh Fruit

  • Depending on what fruit you've chosen for your tart topping, chop into the desired shapes or leave whole if you prefer.
  • Remove the flan dish from the fridge and decorate the tart however you wish with your fresh fruit.
  • FInally, use a pastry brush to gently brush your fruit topping with your fruit glaze. This will give a beautiful shine to your fruit and help to preserve the fruit a little longer.
  • Place back in the fridge for at least 4 hours to allow your crust and filling to firm up a little, allowing it to slice better. Ideally let it chill for around 12 hours or overnight to ensure it sets well. However, if you don't mind a crumbly crust and a softer cream filling, you could serve it immediately without chilling.
  • Keep the tart in the fridge in between servings to keep it fresh and firm. Best eaten within 2-3 days.
