It’s time for the Peanut Butter Bash! This time our ingredients were Peanut Butter and Jelly, which I have loved since the beginning of time. This Peanut Butter & Jelly Tart is super easy to whip up for a weeknight dessert. It’s got some of my favorite things like a flaky puff pastry crust, cream cheese, and peanut butter!

This tart is very reminiscent of my Summer Berry Tart. You make the puff pastry the same exact way, except I did discover something. If you crank the oven up to 400 degrees, the puff pastry is done in about 7-8 minutes versus 10-12 minutes.

While the tart is baking, I whipped up some peanut butter cheesecake.

One the tart had cooled, I pushed down the center to create an crust around the edge and then added the peanut butter cheesecake to the middle.

Then it was time for the jelly. I actually prefer either fruit spread or jam over jelly. I just love the taste of jam over jelly. Recently, I discovered Simple Truth Organic fruit spreads. My kids love these, and they taste amazing. I used their grape fruit spread for this tart.

I took about two tablespoons of the grape fruit spread and heated it in the microwave for about 10 seconds and then stirred it until it was more liquid. Next, I dropped small spoonfuls over the peanut butter cheesecake and then swirled.
