Clear Fruit Glaze

Fruit on desserts need a glaze to keep them fresh and pretty. I gave a recipe for a glaze earlier (see here). I found a better one that's easier to make and utilizes things you more likely have around the home.

1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup lemonade

Bring the sugar and 1/2 cup juice to a boil. Dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining juice. Add to the boiling juice and cook till thick.

Note: You can use any kind of fruit juice instead of lemonade, but lemonade will give you the most translucent appearance. 

Oh and if you want to make mini fruit tarts, follow my fruit tart recipe except bake the crust in cupcake holders:

How cute is that? 

Pipe on some cream cheese filling, top with fruit, glaze it up and you got yourself a fancy pants dessert.
