How to Make White Chocolate & Cream Cheese Fruit Tart

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.
