Sweetheart Tarts

Appropriate for CKD, Dialysis

Sweetheart

(4 servings)

Ingredients:

1 package Pie Dough, pre–rolled
3 oz. Cream Cheese
2 individual packages of Stevia
1 teaspoon Orange extract
½ teaspoon Orange zest
16 oz. Strawberries, fresh
⅓ cup Strawberry Preserves, sugar–free

Directions:

Roll out the pie dough and use the dough to line the tart shells. Poke the dough with a fork, to prevent the dough from bubbling during the baking process. Bake in a pre–heated 400° F oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the dough is golden brown. Time may vary depending on the size of your tart shells. Let cool to room temperature.

Whip cream cheese, orange extract, orange zest and Stevia together. The mixture should be easy to spread. Spread gently over the bottom of the tart shells. Wash and dry strawberries. Slice thin and place on top of the cream cheese lined tarts. Heat strawberry preserves over a low heat until melted, brush over the sliced strawberries and serve.
