a friend showed me how to make a much unhealthier version of this years ago. it was good! it used pillsbury sugar cookie dough (most of the unhealthy part) and canned fruits (some fresh). it also used a ton of sugar in the cream cheese. i found this recipe and i dont think i will be looking back. the lemon is mild but you can adjust to taste. i used neufchatel cream cheese to save on some calories.

lemon berry tart

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup lemon curd

1/2 pint raspberries
2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1/2 pint blueberries

preheat oven to 400 degrees

[1] in a small bowl mix together the flour, butter, brown sugar and egg until dough forms. press dough firmly and evenly against bottom and side of an ungreased 9 inch tart pan.
