Serve a sweet and simply delicious dessert with a homemade cookie crust, a lemony cream cheese filling and a fresh fruit topper.
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup butter or margarine, softened
tablespoons packed brown sugar
cup lemon curd (from about 10-oz jar)
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
cups berries or sliced fruits
Heat oven to 400°F. In small bowl, mix all crust ingredients until dough forms. Press dough firmly and evenly against bottom and side of ungreased 9x1-inch tart pan, using floured fingers.
Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
In small bowl, beat lemon curd and cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Spread over crust. Refrigerate at least 1 hour until slightly firm. Just before serving, arrange berries on lemon mixture.
Showcase any combination of berries and sliced fruit on this tart. Try strawberries and blueberries with nectarine or papaya slices. Add a few blackberries for a dramatic color accent. You'll probably need to make two tarts to serve all of your guests!
Lemon curd is a creamy mixture made by cooking lemon juice, sugar, butter and egg yolks until thickened. Look for lemon curd in jars at the supermarket in the jam and jelly section or at gourmet shops.
