  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup margarine or butter
  • 4 to 5 Tablespoons cold water
  • 1 (8 ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • Sugar substitute equal to ¼ cup sugar, or ¼ cup sugar

  • 4 to 5 nectarines or peeled peaches, pitted and sliced, or one 16-ounce package frozen unsweetened peach slices, thawed and drained

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Combine flour and salt in a medium bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in margarine (or butter) until pieces are the size of small peas. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the cold water over a portion of the mixture. Toss with a fork. Push to side of bowl. Repeat until mixture is moistened. Form into a ball.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, flatten pastry; roll into a 12-inch circle. Ease pastry into a 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, being careful not to stretch pastry. Press pastry about ½ inch up the sides of pan. Prick the bottom well with the tines of a fork. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool on a wire rack. Remove sides of tart pan.
  3. Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, sugar substitute (or sugar) and vanilla in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth; spread over the cooled pastry. Arrange the nectarines (or peaches) over cream cheese layer. Sprinkle with blueberries.
  4. In a small saucepan, heat apricot spread until melted; cut up any large pieces. Spoon melted spread over fruit. Chill for at least 2 hours or up to 3 hours.
