Apparently tomorrow is the 4th of July, which is hilarious because it was just January. If you’re looking for the perfect Independence Day dessert, we’ve got you covered–these little single serving Berry Cream Tarts come together in just a few minutes, can mostly be made ahead of time, and look super impressive even though they’re crazy easy, and don’t involve turning on your oven. Plus, they’re incredibly delicious.


To make the pies, you’re going to need 2 packages of individual graham cracker crusts (12 crusts total), a 4-serving size package of cheesecake-flavored instant pudding, a pint of heavy whipping cream, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla and almond extracts

In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix, cold water, and sweetened condensed milk.

Mix well and place in the refrigerator to chill for a few minutes.

Place the graham cracker crusts on a baking sheet (or something large enough to transport them easily but small enough to fit in your refrigerator) and set aside.

In another medium bowl, whip 1 cup of whipping cream until soft peaks form.

Remove the pudding mixture from the refrigerator and gently fold the whipped cream into it. Divide the mixture evenly among the crusts and place the pan in the refrigerator.

In the same mixing bowl you used to mix the first cup of whipping cream, add the remaining cup of cream, vanilla and almond extracts, and powdered sugar. Whip until soft peaks form. Divide the whipping cream among the tarts,

then garnish with fresh berries.

Serve immediately.
