Cookie Dough Raspberry Tart

Bring out your inner artist when making this fun dessert. Store-bought sugar cookie dough is used to create a giant surface for fresh raspberries, warm seedless raspberry jam, and fresh picked mint leaves. Simple. Have your guests arrange the berries while you heat up the jam.

6 oz. sugar cookie dough
1 pint fresh raspberries
1/2 c. seedless raspberry jam
1/2 c. sour cream
Fresh mint

Preheat the oven to 375-degrees. Flatten the cookie dough between two sheets of plastic wrap, then roll to about an 8-inch circle. Put the giant cookie on a lightly oiled cookie sheet, discarding the plastic wrap. Fold the edges of the dough like you would a pie crust to make it thicker on the outside.

Bake about 10 minutes – don't overcook or it will get very brittle. The dough will expand a bit in the oven. Let rest to cool and harden for about 15 minutes before putting it on a serving platter (or cake pedestal).

Just before serving arrange the berries however you wish. Heat the jam to thin it a little, making it easier to spoon over the berries. Cut the tart into 4 pieces and serve with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of mint.
