Festive Fruit Tart Recipe

Festive Fruit Tart

Pastry for single-crust Pie (9 inch)

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

3 Tbsp. sugar

1 tsp. vanilla

¾ tsp. almond extract, divided

1 cup blueberries

1 cup raspberries

1 medium peach or nectarines, peeled and sliced

2 Tbsp. apricot preserves

Press pastry onto bottom and up sides of an ungreased 9 inch tart pan with a removable bottom; trim edges.  Generously prick the bottom with a fork.  Bake at 450 F. for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool completely on a wire rack.

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and ½ teaspoon almond extract until smooth; spread over crust.  Arrange fruit over cream cheese mixture.

In a microwave, heat preserves and remaining extract, uncovered, on high for 20-30 seconds or until warm.  Brush over fruit.  Store in the refrigerator.        12 servings
