  • Pastry Dough:
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup shortening
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons cold water
  • Berry-Cream Cheese Filling:
  • ½ (8 ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-calorie orange marmalade spread
  • ½ (8 ounce) container frozen light whipped dessert topping, thawed
  • 3 cups assorted fresh berries (such as sliced blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and/or quartered strawberries)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. To prepare the Pastry Dough: In a large bowl, stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon cold water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat moistening dough, using 1 tablespoon cold water at a time, until all the dough is moistened (4 to 5 tablespoons cold water total). Form dough into a ball.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, flatten the ball of pastry dough with your hands. Roll dough from center to edge into a circle about 11 inches in diameter. To transfer pastry, wrap it around the rolling pin. Unroll pastry into a 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Ease pastry into tart pan, being careful not to stretch pastry. Press pastry into fluted side of tart pan. Trim pastry to the edge of the tart pan. Prick the bottom and side of pastry generously with the tines of a fork. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake for 8 minutes; remove foil. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes more or until pastry is golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes.
  4. To prepare the Berry-Cream Cheese Filling: In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium to high speed about 30 seconds or until fluffy. Beat in marmalade. Fold in topping. Spread filling in the baked tart shell. Top with berries. Cover with foil and chill until ready to serve.
