  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10-by-15 inch jelly roll pan.
  2. For the crust, sift together the flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda into a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, cream together white and confectioners' sugars, butter, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients. Blend well. Spread the dough evenly on the bottom of the greased pan. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool completely.
  3. For the filling, cream together the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Spread over the cooled crust. Arrange the fruit on the cream cheese filling and refrigerate.
  4. For the glaze, mix together the sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Whisk in the water, orange juice, and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil gently for one minute. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  5. Spoon or brush the glaze evenly over the fruit. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

This recipe came out great! For an easier glaze you can also just heat up some apple jelly in the microwave and drizzle it over the top.

This is the BEST recipe! I love the crust, it doesn't get soggy. The combination of flavors is perfect. This is the best fresh fruit recipe, hands down.

This is a great recipe as is. I needed a quick recipe so I eliminated the cream cheese part, used only strawberries (2 fresh cartons, sliced) and used the prepared strawberry glaze from the gro...

It depends where you are from whether you call this a flan or tart. Where I come from we call this a flan & a delicious one at that.

The whole family enjoyed this recipes. They were surprised I made the whole thing, even the crust. Found that I needed more cream cheese than it called for, so I made it 1 1/2 times the recipe ...

No matter what the name - the basic recipe is very flexible - making it easy to swap out or switch out ingredients or parts like the crust. Despite a rather long list of ingredients you can make...
