Let this mouth watering tart make you forget the winter woes!


3/4 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour

For the filling:
10 ounces vanilla chips (melt, let cool)
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
8 ounces soft cream cheese
20 ounces pineapple chunks (with liquid)
1 pint strawberries (sliced)
11 ounces mandarin oranges (drained)
2 kiwifruit (peel, slice)

For the glaze:
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice


Combine butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Slowly add the flour; mix well. Use mixture to line one ungreased tart pan. Bake in an oven set to 300 F for around thirty minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack.

Filling: combine melted chips and cream in a bowl. Add in the cream cheese and mix until smooth. Add over prepared crust. Refrigerate for around thirty minutes. Drain the pineapple chunks from can, saving half a cup of the juice. Arrange the pineapple chunks and other fruit over prepared filling.

Glaze: Mix together sugar and cornstarch in a bowl. Stir in lemon and pineapple juice until smooth. Boil over medium heat; cook, stirring every two minutes or until thick. Let cool; brush over fruit in pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.
