every summer, my daughter asks me to make this fruit tart. it has been one of her favorites over the years. it is a very quick dessert, and can be made with a traditional pie crust, a graham cracker crust or with a chocolate cookie crumb crust that i used for the chocolate raspberry tart posted earlier on this blog.
any type of fruit can be used. i have used raspberries and blackberries in this version. in the past, i have used raspberries, strawberries, blueberries or kiwi.
after the crust is prepared, make the delicious filling. start with an 8 ounce package of cream cheese that has been softened. i use low fat cream cheese. add 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon of frozen orange juice concentrate. mix with a hand mixer until very smooth. add 1/2 cup of whipping cream and incorporate into the cheese mixture.
fold the filling in the crust. chill the tart and serve. if desired, a fruit glaze can be used over the added fruit.
to make the glaze: use 2 tablespoons honey and 1 tablespoon frozen orange juice concentrate. mix and brush lightly over the fruit.
