Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1 can (15 ounces) sliced peaches, well drained
  • 1/2 cup fresh raspberries
  • 1/4 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine the pecans, flour and butter; press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. tart pan with removable bottom. Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • In a chilled small bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form; set aside. In another small bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add extracts and orange zest; mix well. Beat in the whipped cream on low speed. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
  • Just before serving, arrange peaches and raspberries over filling. In a small saucepan or microwave, melt preserves and honey; mix well. Carefully spoon or brush over fruit. Cut into wedges to serve. Refrigerate leftovers.
