Fresh Fruit Tart

Fruit Tarts

I made this fruit tart and four tartlettes for some friends last weekend. It was delicious!

Makes 8 servings
Crust:
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened and sliced

Filling:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping:
Kiwi slices, blueberries, any other berries on hand

Glaze:
3 oz. frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. fresh lime juice
3 tbsp. sugar

Crust: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine ingredients in large bowl and cut with a pastry knife until crumbly. This may also be done in a food processor. With your fingers, press dough into a 12-inch tart or pie pan. Pat until the crust is even. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until very lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
Filling: Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Spread over the cooled crust. Top with sliced fruit.
Glaze: Combine the limeade, cornstarch, lime juice, and sugar in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until clear and thick, about 2 minutes. Let cool. With a pastry brush, glaze the entire tart.
