Spring Fruit Tart

Ingredients:

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, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Glaze:

  • 1 (6-ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. For the crust: In a food processor, combine the confectioners’ sugar, flour, and butter, and process until the mixture forms a ball. With your fingers, press the dough into a 12-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, taking care to push the crust into the indentations in the sides. Pat until the crust is even. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until very lightly browned. Set aside to cool.
  3. For the filling and topping: Beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. Spread over the cooled crust. 
  4. Cut the fresh fruit and place in whatever design you desire. Get creative!
  5. For the 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. You will not use all of the glaze.
  6. Keep the tart in the refrigerator. Remove about 15 minutes before serving. Slice into 8 wedges and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
