Cookie Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter softened
  • 1 egg

Lemon Filling

  • 1/2 cup lemon curd storebought or homemade
  • 8 oz cream cheese 1 package
  • 2-3 cups Fresh fruit of your choosing



  • Prepare the crust by mixing all the ingredients until a dough forms (using a mixer or food processor).
  • Press dough as evenly as possible into an ungreased 10" tart pan.
  • Place tart pan (with dough) in the freezer about 1o minutes. Remove from freezer, place on a baking sheet, and bake in a pre-heated 400*F oven for 10-12 minutes, or until light brown. Allow to cool.


  • Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add lemon curd, and continue beating, until fully incorporated and smooth. Spread over cooled cookie crust, and refrigerate 1 hour (loosely covered) until filling is slightly firm.
  • Arrange fresh berries or assorted summer fruits over lemon filling.
  • If desired, brush fruit with warmed red currant, or apple jelly, for a shiny appearance.
  • Serve immediately, or refrigerate until ready to serve (up to 4 hours).
