Cream Cheese and Mixed Berry Tart

Serves 8


refrigerated pie crust, softened (only use 1 pie crust from a 14.1-ounce package)
1 8-ounce
package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup
1 Tablespoon
orange juice
3 to 4 cups
fresh berries (blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries)
¼ cup
strawberry jelly


Following package directions, prepare and bake the pie crust for a 9-inch tart pan. Cool pie crust completely. Place cream cheese, sugar, and orange juice in a small bowl; beat until smooth. Spoon the cream cheese filling into the cooled pie crust; evenly spread the filling with the back of the spoon. Chill pie for 1 hour. Melt the jelly in a microwave for a few seconds until it is liquefied; let it cool until, at least, slightly warm. Place berries atop cream cheese filling (you can randomly place berries atop the cream cheese or you can get creative and make a pattern with the berries). Brush the berries with the melted jelly. Refrigerate pie for 1 hour more before serving. If you have leftovers, store pie in the refrigerator.
