It must be the crisp air of the orchard that makes us want to mold a rustic, fresh fruit tart by hand. This one sports lemony cream cheese along with crisp apples.

  • Use pulsing action to process flour, butter and half the cream cheese in food processor until mixture is blended and starts to pull away from side of container. Shape into ball; wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled.
  • Heat oven to 400°F. Roll pastry on lightly floured surface to 14x8-inch rectangle. Place on parchment paper-covered baking sheet; set aside. Mix remaining cream cheese and half the dry gelatin mix until blended. Spread onto pastry to within 2 inches of edge.
  • Toss apples with remaining dry gelatin mix, cornstarch and cinnamon; spoon over cream cheese filling. Fold edge of pastry over apples. (Apples in center of tart will remain exposed.) Sprinkle with nuts.
  • Bake 35 min. or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Cool.

    I am much more of cook than a baker but this recipe is a keeper!! I had orange Jell-O on hand and used it instead of going to the store to get lemon. Two large apples was more than enough. I had to test taste them before arranging the slices side by side in two rows. I shared a photo with my Facebook friends as I was so proud of it.

    This is absolutely delicious! Too bad it only uses 2 apples (I'm looking to use up the lg. bag we just picked). I guess I'll just have to make it again...and again...and again! Yum!

    OH MY GOODNESS!!! So wonderful! I love all lemons and apple pie, so this is now one of my all time favorite desserts! I also love that the crust doesn't have to look perfect. I usually struggle getting the pie crust into the pie dish without ripping it, so this was perfect for me. Just roll it out and fold it up.
