Ingredients

FOR THE TART SHELL

1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
3/4 c
butter, softened
1/2 c
confectioners' sugar

FOR THE FILLING

10-12 oz
white chocolate chips, melted and cooled
8 oz
cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 c
whipping cream

FOR THE TOPPING

strawberries, kiwis, cranberries, pineapples etc. feel free to use whatever fruits you like, fresh is better.

FOR THE GLAZE

3 Tbsp
sugar
2 tsp
cornstarch
1/2 tsp
lemon juice
*feel free to use jello, when it's cold, glaze the fruits with jello using a brush, just to keep them from changing color and wilting, keeps them shiny. i think jello gives a better finish.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare The Crust:
-In a bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add flour and mix well.
-Press into an ungreased 11 inch. tart/pie pan preferably with removable bottom.
-Bake at 300° for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.
-Cool.
2
Prepare the Filling:
-In a bowl, beat melted chips and cream.
-Add cream cheese, beat until smooth.
-Spread over already baked and cooled crust.
-Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
3
Prepare the Topping:
-Cut and arrange the fruits of your choice over the filling.
4
Prepare the Glaze:
-In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch.
-Stir in lemon juice.
-If the glaze is lumpy; Add pineapple juice until smooth (or any juice available).
-Bring to a boil over medium heat, cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
-Cool.
-Brush the fruits with the glaze.
-Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.

*You can substitute this glaze with jello, much simpler and gives a great finish. Prepare the jello mix as indicated on the box, refrigerate until cold (not stiff), then brush the fruits lightly with the jello mixture. Refrigerate again before serving.
