Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 12 ounces blackberries
  • 12 ounces raspberries
For the Shortbread:
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup flour
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare shortbread:
  1. Place butter, granulated sugar, and almond extract in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix until butter is light and creamy.
  2. Add flour to butter mixture. Mix just until dough comes together.
  3. Lightly flour a large cutting board. Place dough on board.
  4. Using a rolling pin, gently roll out dough until it's about 1/4-inch thick.
  5. With a 3-inch fluted cookie cutter, cut out 10 cookies.
  6. Place cookies on a parchment-lined baking sheet and, prick each cookie a few times with a fork.
  7. Bake cookies just until the edges start to turn golden brown, about 20 - 25 minutes. Do not overcook.
  8. Remove cookies from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
Prepare cream:
  1. Pour heavy cream into the bowl of a stand mixer and, with the whisk attachment, beat until stiff peaks form.
  2. Remove cream from bowl and set aside.
  3. Add cream cheese and powdered sugar to mixing bowl, and with the paddle attachment, mix until completely smooth.
  4. Using a spatula, gently fold 1/3 of heavy cream into cream cheese until well combined. Repeat 2 more times with remaining heavy cream. Set mixture aside.
Assemble tarts:
  1. Hull strawberries and cut into thirds vertically.
  2. Slice blackberries in half vertically, if very large.
  3. Top each cookie with 3 - 4 strawberry slices, placing them around the edges.
  4. Cover strawberries with a 1/10th of the cream mixture, and then press additional strawberries into cream (in between the other berries).
