Recipe- Strawberry Kumquat Fruit Tart
Ingredients
  • For the filling
  • 2 Cups of Ewe Cream Cheese * This is just what I had laying around, you can use regular cream cheese it will probably taste better*
  • ½ Cups of Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 Tsp. Corn Starch
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • For the topping
  • ½ Cup of Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup of White Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Sliced Kumquats
  • 2 Cups of Diced and Hulled Strawberries
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • For the Crust
  • 1 Cup Walnuts
  • 2 Cups of Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal Crumbs (or Graham Cracker Crumbs)
  • 5 Tbsp. of Coconut Oil or Butter
Instructions
  1. First make your crust, in a food processor add your cereal crumbs, walnuts, and coconut oil.
  2. Process until it forms into a fine crumby paste. Grease a 9 inch pie dish.
  3. Press it against 9 inch pie dish, if you have a spring form pan more power to you, I did not.
  4. Bake it in the oven at 350 for 10 minutes. Once your crust is ready, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool.
  5. Prepare your topping, basically heat the butter in a frying pan then add your kumquats, strawberries,corn starch, sugar, and vanilla to the pan. Cook at a medium heat for about 20 minutes until the topping is a bright red and it's mildly sweet with some tartness. Be sure to keep it warm.
  6. Now make your filling, mix your cream cheese , corn starch, sugar, and vanilla extract together. Beat the two eggs and then mix them into your filling so you have a nice smooth mixture.
  7. Once your crust has sufficiently cooled, pour your filling over top the crust and bake in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes at 350F allowing the filling to set, but make sure you don't burn it.  Without about 10 minutes to spare, pour your topping over it so it bakes on.
  8. After that allow it to chill in the refrigerator overnight or for atleast 6 hours. Then serve!
