Fresh Fruit Tart

This recipe has been in my family for years. It’s the perfect dessert to welcome springtime! Chef’s tip: cold butter helps create air pockets in the pastry, leaving you with a flaky crust. The glaze is optional, although recommended!
Prep time: 30 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 sticks butter
2 packages cream cheese
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup sugar
Fruit of choice for topping
Add crust ingredients into a food processor and blend until it forms a cohesive ball. Make sure your butter is very cold, as you want the dough to be firm and not sticky.
Press into a 10–12-inch tart pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. While baking, combine filling ingredients.
For glaze, blend all ingredients in saucepan over medium heat until a clear, thick liquid forms, about 2 minutes. Set glaze aside and let cool.
Once tart shell has cooled, spread filling evenly onto the crust. Place your cut up fruit of choice onto cream cheese filling and make it look pretty! Paint your glaze gently over fruit, and serve.
