Homemade Cherry Breakfast Tarts

Basic Recipe
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6


For the tarts:

2 refrigerated piecrusts
⅓ Cup cherry preserves
1 teaspoon cornstarch
Cooking oil

For the frosting:

½ cup vanilla yogurt
1-ounce cream cheese
1 teaspoon stevia
Rainbow sprinkles


1. To make the tarts:

2. Place the piecrusts on a flat surface. Make use of a knife or pizza
cutter, cut each piecrust into 3 rectangles, for 6 in total. (I discard
the unused dough left from slicing the edges.)

3. In a small bowl, combine the preserves and cornstarch. Mix well.

4. Scoop 1 tablespoon of the preserve mixture onto the top half of
each piece of piecrust.

5. Fold the bottom of each piece up to close the tart. Press along the
edges of each tart to seal using the back of a fork.

6. Sprinkle the breakfast tarts with cooking oil and place them in the
air fryer. I do not recommend piling the breakfast tarts. They will
stick together if piled. You may need to prepare them in two
batches. Cook for 10 minutes

7. Allow the breakfast tarts to cool fully before removing from the air

8. If needed, repeat steps 5 and 6 for the remaining breakfast tarts.
9. To make the frosting:

10. In a small bowl, mix the yogurt, cream cheese, and
stevia. Mix well.

11. Spread the breakfast tarts with frosting and top
with sprinkles, and serve.

6 eggs
Cooking oil
½ cup chopped red bell pepper
½ cup chopped green bell pepper
8 ounces ground chicken sausage
½ cup salsa
6 medium (8-inch) flour tortillas
½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese


1. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste.

smaller pieces using a spatula or spoon. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes,
until the sausage is brown.

skillet from heat.

tortilla with a small amount of water. I prefer to use a cooking
brush, but you can also dab with your fingers.
