Fruited Almond Cheesecake Tart

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Apricots and pears (or use plums, sweet cherries, peaches, or figs) are the highlight of this fruity tart.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. Press pie crust into 9-inch tart pan or pie plate. Prick the bottom. Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven; cool on wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, in a mixer or food processor, blend together cream cheese and almond paste until smooth. Blend in condensed milk, lemon juice and peel.
  • Spread mixture in the bottom of the baked pastry shell. Arrange fruit, cut sides down, alternating apricots with pears in a decorative pattern on top of the filling. Sprinkle with almonds.
  • Refrigerate until the filling is firm, at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours.
