Blackberry Lemon Cream Tarts

School has started back and Labor Day is right around the corner. And it feels like we just got back from our cruise! Weekend after next we have a short weekend camping trip and I can’t wait. We’ll be visiting the Carnival Magic again and also camping at Port Canaveral. I can’t wait to take the kids. They are going to love it!

My son is loving his school this year. He’s lucky to have three amazing third grade teachers. One teaches math and science and has lots of fun animals in her class. Another does reading and social studies and another does spelling, grammar and writing. I know this year is going to be even better than last year.

With all these fun activities I don’t have much time in the kitchen. I like to make quick treats that I can prepare while my daughter naps. That’s why I love to use  Athens Fillo cups. They make little treats like these so easy to prepare!

For these little Blackberry Lemon Cream Tarts I start with whipped cream cheese and heavy cream. Then I add vanilla and lemon zest for flavor and a touch of powdered sugar for sweetness. Then I blend that in the food processor until it’s a thick cream. It’s so easy.

After I have the thickened cream cheese mixture I add it to a pastry bag and pipe it into the Mini Fillo Shells. Then I just garnish with big beautiful blackberries and more lemon zest. These are super simple and so delicious!
