As much as I love spending the day on a beautiful pie, or carefully baking a creamy cheesecake, I have to admit that the majority of the desserts I make on a weekly basis tend to fall into the “quick and easy” category. Or maybe more accurately, the oh-my-gosh-I-totally-forgot-about-that-gathering-and-need-to-be-there-in-an-hour-STAT category.

Still, I’ve learned having less time to cook doesn’t mean that dessert needs to be any less fabulous! So over the years I have pinpointed a few key ingredients to always have on hand in case of a dessert emergency opportunity.

One of my favorites?

Puff pastry.

Brilliant, buttery, flaky, crowd-pleasing, light, versatile, foolproof, heavenly puff pastry. It is, in my humble and overly-enthusiastic opinion, one of the absolute best investments you can make at the grocery store. I use it for literally every category of recipes — appetizers, entrees, snacks, sides, even soups! But without a doubt, I most often use it to make puff pastry desserts. And this Easy Cherry Tart is now one of them.

This easy cherry tart recipe literally couldn’t be simpler. Just bake up a sheet of puff pastry (and save the other sheet in the box for something delicious later!). And while it’s in the oven, whip up a batch of cream cheese frosting. Or if you’re really short on time, you could just use some sweet whipped cream cheese spread. Then once the pastry does its delicious puffing-up magic, simply spread the cream cheese frosting on top and sprinkle with fresh fruit. In this instance, I went with some fresh bing cherries, but anything from pineapple to blueberries to kiwi or anything else in between would sound good. If you want an extra hint of sweetness and shine, try drizzling a little honey on there too.

Beautiful. Simple. Fresh.

And meant to be shared.

I can tell you right now that your friends and family will love it.
