    PanNan's Note:

    Easy, delicious, and impressive enough for company. I clipped this from a magazine a number of years ago. Peaches, blueberries and plums are all in season in June in Texas. This recipe represents the Southwestern state of Texas.

      I've made this recipe for years,it's from BH&G. I've altered the recipe a bit. I use 8oz. cream cheese and 1/2 c. powdered sugar and omit the mint. It turns out great everytime. Spray the pan with cooking spray and it will come right out.

      The crust is to-die-for!! Really enjoyed this recipe. So fresh tasting. I used bananas, blueberries and kiwi. I wanted to use strawberries but they didn't look so good. My daughter actually loved the bananas on this and the apricot jam seems to keep them fresh looking. I may try almond flavoring in the cream cheese custard next time for a change. Thanks for sharing.

      Five stars for this one. I will be making this fruit tart again, tomorrow. I made it last year for my daughter's birthday. It was simple to make and simply delicious. Everyone raved about it. I used a pizza pan and the usual wonderful fresh fruits available at this time of the year. Thank you for the recipe which has become a family birthday tradition.
