Vanilla Cream Fruit Tart

I know you've been waiting for this dessert recipe! It complemented our spring potluck meal perfectly. This recipe came to me through my mom and one of our dear family friends, Sissy. I've had this recipe in my little cookbook for quite some time waiting for the perfect event to make it. I tested it out here and can't wait to make it again for a summer cookout.

Vanilla Cream Fruit Tart
3/4 c butter or margarine, softened
1/2 c confectioners sugar
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 - 10 oz pkg vanilla chips, melted and cooled
1/4 c whipping cream
1 - 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
1 c fresh blueberries (the grocery store was out of blueberries when I was shopping; kiwi made a great substitute/addition)
1 c fresh raspberries
1/2 c pineapple juice
1/4 c sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp lemon juice

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and confectioners sugar. Beat in flour (mixture will be crumbly). 

Pat into bottom of a greased 12-in pizza pan. 

Bake at 300F for 25-28 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. In another mixing bowl, beat melted chips and cream. Add cream cheese and beat until smooth. Spread over crust. 

Chill for 30 minutes. Arrange berries over filling. In a saucepan combine pineapple juice, sugar, cornstarch, and lemon juice; bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 2 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Cool; brush over fruit. Chill 1 hour before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
