"This is perfect. You can use any fruit you like. If I'm running short on time, I chop up the fruit I'm using, mix the glaze in and top the tart."

"Absolutely delicious! Nice alternative to the usual custard tart fillings. The cream cheese and white chocolate paired so nicely with the fruit I added - strawberries, kiwi, blueberries and raspberries. Everyone asked for the recipe!"

"Not a crumb left! The only thing I changed in the ingredients was adding ~2tsp (1 lemon worth) of zest to the crust. It really added a nice citrus flavor (and justified buying a lemon for 1/2 tsp of juice). I only used 1/4 cup of glaze, and I also modified a couple steps. First, I've always had issues combining things with melted white chocolate; it always clumps up because it cools too much. For this recipe, I added the chips and cream to the bowl of my stand mixer and set it over boiling water. I mixed until smooth and then whipped using the mixer until it cooled off a bit. Then I threw in the cream cheese 1-2 ounces at a time and whipped on medium until it was smooth. The result was so creamy and light! I also prepped each part of the recipe and stored them separately in the fridge overnight, then assembled a couple hours before serving because I was afraid it would get soggy. The results were terrific. Oh, one more thing...the smaller the fruit the more impressive the design looks."

"****(4 Stars)

Refridgerating the butter crust for a few minutes definitely helped make it easier to press into the pan."

"My butter was softened to room temp, but I still had problems with the dough being too soft to press into the tart pan. It wanted to stick to my spatula. I tried using my fingers rubbed with a little butter without luck. I ended up chilling the dough for about 20 minutes to gain a little firmness. We'll see if that helps."
