Ingredients
  • 1 1/4  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 3  tablespoons  granulated sugar
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 6  tablespoons  butter
  • 1  egg yolk
  • 3 - 4  tablespoons  cold water
  • 1 1/2 8  ounce package  cream cheese (12 oz.), softened
  • 2/3  cup  sifted powdered sugar
  • 1/4  cup  whipping cream
  • 1  tablespoon  orange liqueur or orange juice
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 2 - 2 1/2  cups  assorted fruits (peeled and cut up kiwi fruit, raspberries, peeled and chopped papaya, and/or cut up strawberries)
  • 2  tablespoons  apricot preserves
  • 1/2  teaspoon  orange liqueur or orange juice
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F. For pastry, in a medium bowl stir together flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in egg yolk and enough cold water to moisten. Knead gently until mixture forms a ball.

2. On a lightly floured surface roll dough to a 12-inch circle; carefully transfer to a 9-inch pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2-inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry. Crimp edge. Generously prick bottom and sides of pastry with a fork. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake 8 minutes; remove foil. Bake for 10 minutes more or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.

3. For filling, in a bowl beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until combined. Add whipping cream, the 1 tablespoon liqueur, and vanilla. Beat until combined. Spoon filling into baked pastry shell. Cover and chill 1 to 4 hours.

4. To serve, arrange fruit on top of filling. Heat preserves and 1/2 teaspoon liqueur until melted. Drizzle over pie. Makes 8 servings.
