Fresh Fruit Tart

12" pie crust, baked
assorted sliced fruit (strawberries, kiwifruit, banana, etc)

3 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp milk
1 Tbsp orange rind
2/3 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice

Combine cream cheese, sugar, milk, and orange rind. Beat until
smooth, then add the cream and beat until mixture thickens, about
5 minutes. Spread on the baked pie crust and chill. Arrange sliced
fruit on top. To make glaze: combine sugar and cornstarch in a
pan, then add water and juices. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute.
Let cool slightly and spoon evenly over fruit. Keep chilled until
serving time.

For the pie crust, use any basic (or fancy) 2 crust recipe you
like. My mom has one of those 12" tart pans, but a pizza pan would
probably work. You could even use a pre-baked crust, but the
filling will be thicker because it would be only a 9" pan. I've
also made this into individual 4" tarts.

My sister asked for a fruit tart for her birthday dessert. I looked up some on the internet and found this one. It looked easy enough for a tart novice so I printed it out and tried it. The filling was a breeze to make.. my suggestion use jar orange rind.. getting a tablespoon out of an orange is hard. The glaze made more than enough and my mom took home the leftovers to use on something else. I adapted the recipe somewhat in that I coated my pie crust w/ chocolate before putting in the filling.. I refigerated it until the filling was ready and it set up nice. I also only used strawberries because as everyone knows you can't go wrong w/ chocolate and strawberries. We all loved it and my sister was a happy birthday girl.
